From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. (2 Corinthians 5:16)
God wants us to see His love for creation in each one of us. Everyone we meet is a unique reflection of Father, Son and Holy Spirit; with gifts given specifically for God’s purpose. Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth encourages the believers there to see everyone as God does.
Christian author C. S. Lewis says in his book The Weight of Glory “you have never talked to a mere mortal”. If we relate to everyone the way we would if Christ himself were in front of us, how much better and loving would our conversations be?
See the image of God in everyone and act accordingly – live as part of His kingdom every day!
Loving Lord, help us to be caring, active members of Your family, at work for You in all we do. Amen.
