This is a beautiful reminder of humanity, even in the darkest of days. We are all created by God; deep down, we are all simply people. This reminds me so much of what Shifty Powers said about the German soldiers he fought against during WWII:
“We might have had a lot in common. He might’ve liked to fish, you know, he might’ve liked to hunt,” Powers said. “Of course, they were doing what they were supposed to do, and I was doing what I was supposed to do, but under different circumstances, we might have been good friends.”
No matter what battles we are fighting, we must always try to have a compassionate heart towards others and remember that others have struggles of their own. I understand that during a real war, this is not always possible to do, but oh, how beautiful it is when it happens!
Kudos to Sainsbury’s for this great ad, and bringing to the forefront a little bit of our history that may have well been forgotten. (The second video gives a little back story, if you are interested in seeing it)

If you have a battle you are facing, leave me a comment and let me pray for you! (You don’t have to leave details if you don’t want to, just leave a comment and let me know you would like prayer.)
