If you seek God alone, then that which is from God in others will come alive, whether or not you can see it.

Jesus sees what is of God in others, even if it is still hidden as a tiny seed.

This is the gospel you must proclaim.

Preach it simply.

Jesus values each person; he sees their dignity as God created them.

He came to rid every person of shame and self-contempt, of the feeling that they are nothing and can do nothing, the feeling that they have ruined everything and nothing can change that, the feeling that all is hopeless.

(Christoph Frederick Blumhardt)
