While at the zoo this year, we came across this guy. Whoa! Big and hairy and mean-looking. Boy, I'd hate to run into him in the jungle or anywhere for that matter.
I enlarged this second picture of him just to see his face better.
Check out his head. Ouch. Must've been a fight with the other orangutan. When I enlarge even more, I can see his eyes, too. Not so ferocious now.
Made me think about others around us. Most of them have hurts we don't see because we don't/can't get close. And I know I never think about them hurting.
"God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7
Lord, give me eyes to see beyond the outward appearance. Make me sensitive to others.
