I recently found myself thinking about vintage cameras and the negatives used to make photographs. The negatives were intriguing. I remember looking at the negatives, trying to figure out who and what was in them. The negatives were always interesting and looked quite differently from the “finished” product. So much how we see other people and sometimes self, too. It is very easy to see the negative vs. the developed. I believe we would perceive people kindlier if we knew their stories. Christ takes the negative and develops it. Oh, to be more like Jesus.
