"As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world."
~ John 17: 18
There is something about watching the sky and surrounding trees reflecting on water. Reflections are interesting. You know none of us have ever seen our face as others do. Only our reflection or photos. Not directly, but yet, we have an understanding of what we look like based upon these images.
For the world, we are the reflection of God. While none of us living have seen God's face, we understand who God is because of who each of us are. We are the reflection, or image, of who God is.
Have you ever sat in a room full of people and realized that every person in that room is a reflection of who God is?
It becomes clear to me that the reflection of God is simply impossible to imagine until we begin to realize that every person in this world is indeed God's reflection.
So while you look into the mirror to start the day, take a closer look and discover the reflection of God. While you gather with others, ride the bus, or stand in line at the grocery store, begin to realize that what you are witnessing is similar to clouds being reflected upon the water. You are seeing the reflection of who God is in the world today.
Stay in God's grip!
