Temple Grandin’s Brilliance

May 16, 2016

The movie, “Temple Grandin” depicts a brilliant woman trapped in a mind afflicted with autism. In spite of her challenges she discovers that she connects with cattle better than people. She’s now renown for designing cattle handling facilities.

In the movie, she presents a concept to a cattle slaughterhouse that’s costly and completely out of the box. Because of her poor social skills they didn’t take her seriously until she forcefully described the benefits. Sometimes we overlook the ideas of others, because they don’t look or sound like we expect.

1 Peter 2:17 teaches, “Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.”

If someone’s trying to pitch you an idea, show them respect, even if they’re different. You might be surprised and blessed!
