Have you at first glance concluded in your heart of hearts that some people cannot just be real?
For example, listen to this:
“She loves God and she is really an angel. She is intelligent and one of the top students in her class. Tolani is from an average family but she is so contented. I once saw her give out a new dress to a friend who was in less need than she actually was. She is also fun loving, understanding, easy to teach and willing to learn. She is hospitable, with no strings attached. To her, everyone is family. I mean, she just seems too good to be true”.
What about this one…:
“Jimi saw the frustration on my face just like the dozen other students did. I had been trying to give out questionnaires for over an hour and I was successfully failing at it. He introduced himself as “a friend that would like to help”. He went around talking to his friends who called him Jimi-J or Pastor J. Obviously; he was popular and very much loved. Within minutes, we had distributed the questionnaires and laughed a lot while doing so. We talked about many things, down to the missing national budget. If Jimi was assigned to finding it, I was sure he would, he was that meticulous. He wasn’t ‘stinking’ of money but he looked comfortable. His English was warm and accurate. After we got the questionnaires back, he smiled and started going on his way. I thought, “he wouldn’t ask for my number?”. Interesting. In that time spent with Jimi, I was reminded of those unique-too-good-to-be-true-guys”.
At first glance, it is hard to give a true and in-depth summary of anyone unless you are God or He just allows you, for that moment, to play the role. Most times, you only grade the surface and hope that in getting closer to the person; their depth would not turn out to be a can of worms.
Sometimes, some very rare times, right from surface evaluation, a person just does not seem real. Now, if you are very skeptical, that is enough reason to stay as far away as possible. But with a curious mind, you’ll like to find out how deep their unbelievable features extend. To your amazement, they turn out to be awesome in and out…totally!
I have met a few of these types and I have two conflicting reactions about them:
1. I want to keep them in a jewelry box, safe and shielded from whatever it is that contaminates other people out there.
2. I want to share them with the world. To show others that there are amazing people and they can also be like them.
