Dear God, People are always asking me "How are you?" Most of the time, it is
just a greeting. They really don't want to know how I am. I admit that in a
rush, I'll pass by someone and greet him or her with a "Hi. How are you doing?"
Even though I care, I don't really expect to spend a long time in conversation
to get all the details of how that person really is doing. That's sad. Please
help me to be willing to sacrifice a little of my time and to take a few moments
to offer a sincere and caring response. Maybe I should just say, "Fine...and how
can I help you today?" or "Been a little under the weather, but doing great
today. May I help you... or May I pray for you..." or whatever you lay upon my
heart to say and do. I want to give a more personal touch...to be a blessing to
others and show your love in my response. In Jesus' name I thank you.
