Today as I was walking on campus, I began to notice the various reflections in the windows of the buildings. It is winter and the floral beauty I enjoyed in the fall is no longer there. It also was a mostly cloudy day, but then I noticed the reflection in these windows of the sun coming through the clouds. It got me to thinking about what do I reflect to others? My mind recalled several Bible verses that I learned as a child. “You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven ” (Matthew 5:14, 16) and “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35)
I think that in this time of “cloudiness” in our land and lives, a time of illness, uncertainty, unrest, and fear, a time when we haven’t been able to enjoy many of the beauties of life that we did not so long ago, we as Christians need to be reflecting the the fruit of the Spirit more than ever: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Gal. 5:22)
So, my blog this evening is short. I will leave you with the question that I am asking myself-What am I reflecting to those around me? Do they see Christ in me?
