Reflection: When you look in the mirror, what do you see? For me it’s pretty much the same mold, same old. Maybe a little chubbier face and a few more skin blemishes. But the same old beard—maybe greyer. How about you?
Do you ever look in the mirror and think that your image is a reflection of God? Sort of a strange thought, huh? But, here’s another idea. When people look at you, what do they see? Jesus? Hmmmmm.
The writer of Hebrews tells us that Jesus is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being. Now Jesus has a leg up on us, being divine and human. But, we are created in the image of God. Ought we not also reflect the glory of God? Let’s live today that others may see God in us. --Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff
