In striving to encounter God in your daily life, find things that bring you closer to God and those around you and use your God-given-gifts to help others to do the same. Do your best to love everyone you meet, seeing them as they truly are, a beautiful and glorious part of God, and not as they sometimes seem to be. Be compassionate, full of grace and understanding, and forgive those who wrong you. Remember the grace that’s been shown to you at times and do the same, so that through your love, you may be friends.
