A Different Perspective - December 7

O'Hare Airport
by Berni Dymet

Matt. 8:2-3 "Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean." He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, "I do choose. Be made clean!" Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

I was recently in Chicago - which one of my favorite cities on the planet.

But O'Hare Airport - I tell you, it's something I don't enjoy. The place is so big and so busy - it's like a city in itself. In fact it pumps billions of dollars into Chicago's economy each year.

There are so many people being processed through airline and security queues, and rushing to make flights. The sheer volume means that the staff just have to rush and process you. No time to smile.

I was checking in for my flight, and now instead of people they have touch screens and passport scanners.  I couldn't figure out how to work this thing - but the staff were all too busy to help.

And then one of them, she saw me struggling, she came over, and smiled and helped. She stood out from the crowd.

It's a bit like when Jesus reached out and healed the leper. When we reach out and touch someone, I tell you, we stand out from the crowd.
