I just finished watching several YouTube videos on the Gorilla Test.
I kind of cheated because I knew about the gorilla. But even though I knew about the gorilla, the testers did their own cheating with several variations that I did not expect. Consequently, I did not see them.
Now, before you accuse me of having way too much time on my hands, there really was a purpose in watching the videos. Our book club is now reading Love Like That by Les Parrott. Over the next several months, we will learn five habits required to love people like Jesus did.
But the first chapter resonated with me so strongly, I felt compelled to share it with you. We will never love like Jesus without improving our mindfulness. Jesus never hesitated to interrupt His own agenda to give His full attention to someone who needed Him. He actually looked at a person and saw him or her.
I on the other hand, am frequently told by friends that they were sitting across the intersection, waving at me like a mad person from their car, and I never saw them. How can I love like Jesus when I never even see a person?
Does that hit a chord with you too? I put a link to the book on the Marketplace page at Lifting Her Voice, in case developing mindfulness resonates with you too.
