This morning in gathering the celebrity birthday announcements
to share during they 9:00 hour (like I always do), I learned that
Brittains Got Talent star from 2009 Susan Boyle is celebrating her
birthday today.Â I watched the clip of when she first
took the stage.Â Everyone, (me included), took one look
at her and already we had a preconceived notion of who she was, a
dumpy, nobody with bushy eyebrows.Â There was no way she
was going to impress the judges, yet alone be any kind of a good
singer.Â The audience chuckled, the judges rolled their
eyes......until.......she began to sing. The audience errupted with
applause, the judges were stunned and moved with
emotion.Â I have to admit, I went through the same thing
watching the video.Â I got goose bumps, and then I was
convicted.Â God spoke to me and said, "Ted, how often do
you judge like that?Â How many times do you look at
others and allow preconceived thoughts and opinions to form before
you give them a chance?"
I need to be careful!Â "Father forgive me."
Check out the video with this in mind and see if it doesn't move you too.
