Be the Reflection of God’s Goodness
Whether or not you believe the doctrine of the incarnation, one thing it clearly teaches us is that when God wants to perform his greatest miracles he does so through the instrumentality of human flesh. This should ever remind us that we are God’s hands. Ordinary men and women matter. They can make a difference. They can be instruments of kindness and generosity. They can be the modern-day incarnation of God as they reveal his loving and abiding presence to others through their empathic kindness and thoughtful acts of service. They can remind the world that God still exists, that there is still goodness in this world and that miracles continue to happen.
Your goodness to others reminds others that there is a God. Be the reflection of God’s goodness.
Look someone in the eye today and tell them how much they mean to you. Tell them why and how they have made a difference in your life. And then say, “Thank you.”
