The other day I had to drive my son to school for an early morning golf tournament and it was still dark when I turned onto the main drag of my subdivision. As I made my way around the corner, I realized a runner was heading towards me, thanks to the reflectors he was wearing on his clothes. I swerved out of the way just in time and thought, “If he didn’t wear those reflectors I might not have seen him in time!” I was relieved and thought about the scenario later that day.
What if we reflected our faith in that way, so no one could miss us? They would always see us coming and we would reflect life in this often dark world? Matthew 5:16 says, In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Are we reflecting God’s love to others? Does the light of Christ shine through us wherever we go? Is it hard to miss us because of the light we reflect or do we just blend in with the darkness?
God wants to use us to reflect His light in this world. Ask the Lord to make you his reflector!
