Why does this make me cry virtually every time I watch it? I’ve been thinking a lot about that. Watch it yourself before you read any further:

?Do I cry because:

??

•?It’s a voice so beautiful and perfect that it must be a gift from a beautiful and perfect God?
?•?I resonate so strongly with a person fulfilling their dreams against all odds?
?•?I realize how I often judge people by outward appearance, missing who they really are and what they can do?

Chinese pastor and author Watchman Nee once observed that humans are the only animal God created with the capacity to shed tears. That when we refuse to cry we reduce ourselves to the level of a brute beast. That tears have a almost medicinal, cleansing effect on our soul. That we are never more like creatures with the thumb print of God then when we cry? I wonder…
