    A post shared by Nicole Weider (@nicoleweider) on

    I have always loved how small moments can have such a big impact on people’s worldview.

    The other day while I was out in Beverly Hills and doing my various errands and shopping, it really struck me what a melting pot Los Angeles is, and I love it for that reason. One thing I always try to do is to find common ground and be warm and welcoming to the many people I meet and come across who are different from me.

    For instance, today while I was getting my nails done, a Muslim woman came in with full hijab; her whole body was covered and she had a hair scarf over her hair to cover it. She came in and I smiled at her and said hi. We got to talking, and we were laughing about how my nails looked really long after they first put acrylics on. She was getting her eyebrows done, and was wearing pretty makeup. As she was leaving, I told her “God bless you.” And she smiled really big and said the same.

    It was so nice to find common ground with her despite our very different cultures and upbringings. I’m so glad I talked to her. I see many Muslim women in Beverly Hills; some come here for vacation because it’s really hot in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.

    When you come across someone who looks different from you, realize that they have a backstory and a different culture and that God loves them, too. Never compromise your faith in Jesus; rather let it be evident through your actions, manner and ways in which you interact with others and who God puts in your path. You never know what is a divine appointment!

    Do you try to be friendly with people who are different from you?
