Many times when we ask someone how they are doing, they’ll say “I’m fine”. But if we are truly paying attention we can notice their body language might tell a different story. I heard one time this referred to as “heart winks”.
This week in Devos & Doodles we read Romans 15:2, which tells us to bare one another’s burdens. That might require some self-sacrifice: putting down the phone, forgetting about rushing off to the next errand, and paying close attention to the person talking to us.
Watch for those heart winks—times when the smile on their face doesn’t really match the look in their eyes. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask those questions. Dig a little deeper. We don’t always know what’s going on in people’s lives. Sometimes even close friends. You never know when you will be the life rope to someone.
