In nursing, we are trained to see beyond the physical needs of patients and recognize that they are whole persons in need of care. In the Bible, Paul exhorts his readers to see other people through spiritual eyes—God’s eyes—and to respond accordingly. Reflect on this devotional to integrate faith and practice.
