Mind of Christ

Many years ago while selling diamonds, a young man walked into our upscale store who was covered with tattoos and piercings with long hair.  My day would start with Philippians 2:5 which reads “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”  That , to me, included neither judgement nor fear.  All of the other sales associates either went to the back of the store or got busy as to not have to wait on him.

Not only did I sell him an expensive diamond but I got to know a loving, kind and intelligent young man.  A week later when he came back to pick up the ring we had sized for him, he brought me a long-stem red rose and his fiancée was with him.  She immediately hugged me and told me that he had gone to eight other jewelry stores and no one would assist him.  I can so remember that day when I really learned to look through God’s eyes and see only “Love”.
