Halos OFF

I TOOK MY HALO OFF and the craziest thing happened. I found out that the young man standing next to me knew that there was a better life for him, but he was afraid to walk HALOinto it. I TOOK MY HALO OFF and learned that a well-respected woman never finished high school or her GED. I TOOK MY HALO OFF and learned that someone extremely close to me was carrying a deep seated pain that had never been shared with anyone. I TOOK MY HALO OFF and learned that someone lives with the guilt of their parents death although nothing could be done to prevent it. I TOOK MY HALO OFF and prayed with the man asking for change for food on the streets.

I TOOK MY HALO OFF and realized that without it my light was a lot brighter causing family, friends, and complete strangers to trust the God in me. Removing my halo didn’t diminish me, but offered me the opportunity to uplift those who needed me most. So I challenge you to take your halo off. Just for a day be curious about the weight that someone else carries. You’ll be surprised what you learn. Uplifting them ultimately uplifted me.  I know something good happened when you took your halo off.  Share with me what happened.

    1. Wow. Thanks for sharing. Oftentimes we misread a persons attitude or body language as uninviting. However, taking a moment to care, engage, or inquire could lead to new found understanding. I hope this led to an opportunity to encourage and uplift her.
