Sometimes we can learn the most meaningful lessons from innocent children. In this episode of In My Day, Kay Weeks shares a story of when three young schoolgirls left a powerful impression on her about how to best love your neighbor. Kay works as a tour guide at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. She frequently gives tours to school groups, but one group really made an impact on Kay. Students that day were very diverse, with children from many different ethnic and religious backgrounds present. “We’re looking at one painting, but the children are distracted by another larger painting that is of Abraham getting ready to slay his son Isaac. And the children want to know more about that painting,” Kay recalls. She explained to the group how the painting depicted the story of Abraham preparing to offer his son as a sacrifice to God, but how God intervened to protect Isaac’s life. Three little girls in the group each felt a flicker of recognition around the story and each offered up a comment. What was it about this painting that resonated with the girls and how did that help strengthen their friendship? Check out this video for Kay’s touching rendition of a moment that has always served as a lesson for her about loving our neighbors and appreciating everyone’s differences.  Afterall, there is more that unites us than divides us.
