Seven Seconds

You know the most common misconception people make for themselves about another is an act of character.

Within the first seven seconds of knowing a person, we’ve already pretty much made up our minds if we’re going to bother getting to know them, to look deeper into the person that we could potentially be placing ourselves with, or to leave them in a storm of dust that Jesus himself could hardly understand or move to light.

To shift that cloud takes an act of courage and maturity, in order to look past our prejudice and to learn more about someone we’ve disliked in seven seconds.
