Acts 14:8-13

8In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked.

9He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed

10and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.

11When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in human form!"

12Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker.

13The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

The Crippled Man's Faith

Paul looked directly at him and could see his faith.
I wonder what that looked like?
Are there people around us who are waiting for us to look at them?
People who have faith and are searching for answers?

I was like that for a period of time.
Just waiting for someone to look at me and help me.
Now I take opportunities to slow down and look & listen.
