Every family has a story, every colleague, every child

By Elizabeth Prata

I found this to be helpful in how to think of other people in my never-ending quest to esteem others above myself.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3)

Today is the start of a new school year. We met most of the kids and their parents/guardians last night at Open House. Every family has a story. Every child is made in the image of God. Every colleague has a story, and unbeknownst to us sometimes it’s a sad one or a difficult one.

Let’s offer grace, patience, and humility toward one and all today and every day.
