First Impressions

I have a nasty habit.

I make snap judgments on people based on first impressions. Especially if they are “long talkers.”

Anyway, as part of our Russia Mission Trip last month, I met some folks from other churches in other states who joined our team.

And you guessed it: with a number of them I decided early on “I’m not going to like that one!”

But the good news is that God is bigger than my nasty habit. The very people I had decided early on I wouldn’t like were the ones I loved most deeply by the end of the trip. Their first impression was not a lasting impression.

I suspect those people didn’t change their behavior.

No, God just changed my attitude. And that’s the thing that needed to happen.
