Love begins with looking but looking is risky. I might have to pay (with my money or my time) if I look too closely or care too deeply. When I love I become the servant, not the master. It’s easier to look through the narrow lens of “my world.” To cherish means to combine looking with compassion. I can’t have compassion unless I look first. If I know I am loved, that someone is looking at me, then I can look at others and give love. And I am seen and loved very deeply by Jesus. He really sees me and He runs toward me. Therefore, I can feel free to imitate Him and really look at people.
