Inside Out- Do We See with God’s Eyes?

08.12.15 | Martha Manikas-Foster

On the anniversary of the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, it is appropriate to ask ourselves if we jump to judgement about other people. And, as Christians in a culture that sees us as judgmental, do we regularly test ourselves to see if we love others as God loves them?

Author, speaker, seminary graduate, and a former Special Olympics coach Margot Starbuck joins us for a conversation prompted by her Today’s Christian Woman article titled “Prone to Wander, Judge and Discriminate.”

“When I imagine God looking at a Muslim person in an airport, I don’t think that God sees ‘dangerous terrorist,’” Starbuck says in our recorded interview. “Or when God sees, you know, average black teenage boy walking by, I don’t think God sees ‘thug.’ God sees the person He created in love, and I think it’s our job to purposely put on those spectacles.”

“I think that we can choose to see differently,” Starbuck says, “and that the Spirit helps us do that.”
