Gain a New Perspective
by Gateway Church

If you are not normally dependent on public transportation, spend a half-day traveling through your town on the bus or train. Observe the people who use this service. Figure out how you would have to rearrange your life if you were always dependent on a bus schedule. As you ride, pray about simply being open to someone you meet on the bus. This might mean smiling at someone, striking up a friendly conversation, showing concern, or silently praying for those around you. All of these things can be done, fueled by the power of Jesus' love. Try to see the people around you through His eyes. Journal about your experience and consider how seeing the world differently through this activity might inspire you to serve people in your community.
