While recently traveling and passing through the Chicago O’Hare Airport, I was again astounded when seeing thousands of people coming in and going out to many, many different places around the world. I was moved to write about people and places.
By looking, we can identify many by their looks and speech. Often times, it is somewhat difficult to know a person’s creed or education, although sometimes by listening to someone’s philosophy of life, we can soon observe where they stand in their creed or education.
By one’s countenance and temperament it is easy to know whether they are happy, sad, nonchalant or covering up their deep inner feelings and or their ethnic background.
When observing groups of people or individuals, the physical stature does vary immensely. Some people are tall, some short, thin, heavy and some walking with a limp. Some may be twisted back, some with maybe only one limb or perhaps blind. There are people with health who have tremendous vigor and are robust, strong and stout. Some people are right-handed, some are left, and some are gifted with being comfortable using either hand.
There are people strongwilled, others seemingly hesitant to exert themselves when needing to make decisions.
Many people are easily persuaded to purchase things, or to follow others when asked to join organizations, clubs or even bizarre cults. Too often people can be extremely naive in their perception of what is happening.
The question often asked is, “Can we determine what people are like by the clothes they wear?” Naturally, we label people untidy, unkempt, shabby or neat, orderly or unadorned. The habits people have depict what their philosophy of life is.
The occupation one is involved in often portrays what kind of person they are. The likes and dislikes many times spill over from the inner being of many people. What does motivate people to do what they do? The motivations need to come from proper, decent and respectable reasoning.
Society needs to recognize that every person has a personality and personal identity. There is much enjoyment when proper and truthful identity is given to all persons.
Most of the time, the places people wind up in is a result of decisions that person has made. It is sad that in many parts of the world, this is not the case. We in the United States, Canada and other countries of the world are very fortunate we can choose the places in which we live, work and play.
In a large part, the ethnic heritage determines what place people desire to live in.
Regardless of people or the place in which we find ourselves, we need to remember whose we are and who we answer to. In this life and in eternity, people have a choice as to which place they will be at.
We dare never forget that each person’s body can be the temple of the Holy Spirit.
I Cor. 6:19,20
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
