many of my posts come from my emails to my amazing friend, stef. here is todays...

When I got home last night, I perused my bookshelf, looking for something to read. I was too restless to watch House with my Dad, which is my routine for Monday nights. I came across this little tiny book by Max Lucado that came with our study book, when I ordered form CBD. It's a tiny little book, with big type and pictures on every page. I thought it was one of those dumb books you give people for graduation or the like when you don't really know the person. It's called God's Mirror.

It's a parable of a big CEO, who works upstairs. This man is kind, loving and considerate of others. No one ever sees him, but they do see his daughter, who works at the company. She is mean to the doorman, the receptionists and the mail boys. They know she is his daughter, even though she never flaunts the fact. Though they don't even know the boss, they despise him, because they assume his daughter is mirror of her father.

The story changes, now the daughter is kind to the doorman, receptionist and mail boys. She is considerate, helpful and nice. She is a direct reflection of her father upstairs. You don't need to meet him to know that he loves others, because his daughter shows this love for him.

I think of all the times I have not reflected my father upstairs. How my actions have reflected me. Why would people want to know a God who acts just like me?

"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
2 Corinthians 3:18
