John 1:43–51

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He
found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the
city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have
found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of
Joseph from Nazareth.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of
Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” When Jesus saw Nathanael coming
toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no
deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?” Jesus answered, “I
saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Nathanael replied, “Rabbi,
you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered, “Do you
believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see
greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you
will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the
Son of Man.”




Do I always pigeonhole people by looking
down on their gender, origin, race, or family?


As I sit with Jesus, I ponder How do you see
me? How do you read my innermost heart?
