A Lesson And A Challenge
We have often heard it said that we should be Christ to other people, but do we really understand what that means? It means a complete change of person and character. No matter if we are having a bad day, have loads of homework, or just going about our lives, we are challenged by God to show His love in everything that we do. This is a very daunting task: one that must never be taken lightly. It is also very humbling, because by showing God's love to others, we realize that we are not perfect. We see that we do not have all the answers. We must become Someone Else in order to bring about any good in this world and make our lives worthwhile. Thirdly, it is a great lesson in trust, because we have given everything we will do in the future to God and His Kingdom. Only good can come out of this imitation of God.
So I urge you to think about how you show God's love. Do you hide it in the infamous bushel basket? Do you shy away when an good opportunity arises? Will you show kindness to others, or look the other way when someone is hurting?
What kind of impression will YOU make?
