I heard a story about a man who while waiting on his flight at the airport decided to enjoy an art exhibit provided for waiting passengers.
He described the art as wonderful but took him all of 20 minutes to view. As he was leaving he noticed that a woman who had been looking at a particular piece of art when he arrived was still standing staring at the same picture.
How odd, he thought but it made him ask the question. What does she see that I don’t??
I wonder if people look at me as a believer and ask the same question. What does she see in Christ that I don’t see?
Do they notice a difference, uniqueness, a peace in knowing that I am a child of God?
Do they see a difference in my attitude when someone cuts me off in traffic, takes MY parking space, or when a screaming child sits next to me while I’m trying to enjoy my lunch?
Or are they like this man…seeing nothing that catches their interest? I want to make a difference…how about you?
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses it saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no long good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on it stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16, NIV)
During this Christmas season and into the New Year…Let others see Jesus in You! ~Deb
