God in size 5 shoes

Do you tend to be more understanding of ppl in an occupation that you've worked in before?
Like, you would think that a telemarketeer would empathise with the agony of countless rude replies and "kind excuses"... and hence, be kinder to the next telemarketeer who calls his hse yah?

I don't think so.

On the contrary, i think it makes us more impatient with them ... and critical too.
It's like, "Hullo! I've been there, done that okei ... so don't think i donno hor."

Yet ... God became Man so He could walk around in our size 5 shoes (okei, size 8 for the guys) right?

Picture Him squeezing His all-powerful self into a puny, limited body that can only be in 1 place at a time, and can only attend to 1 problem at a time. (Yes, somehow I dun think the concept of 'multi-tasking' was invented yet then ... hahaha.)

365 days of 33 years, having the power, but choosing NOT to use it, so He can fully identify with us?

Of everyone, wouldn't He be the most qualified to roll His eyes at us and be all,

"Stop whining. Your life is not that bad compared to what I went through." ?

Instead, it is said,"He gives grace to the humble." (Proverbs 3:34)

Woo hoo! It's nice to know there is hope! :)
