Reflections




This baby seems to like what she sees in the mirror, and that’s good. Because some people don’t. Michael Jackson wrote a song called “The Man In the Mirror”. Yet, considering his many plastic surgeries, it seems he did not like his reflection. And that’s sad to me. Countless people live on this earth, and yet God has given each and every one of us the wonderful gift of being different from each other. One thing this shows us is that we are not all just a faceless mass of humanity, but each person is created uniquely, as special for God to love and care for. This can seem hard for some people to grasp, but It is not hard at all for God, who knows each and every star he placed in the firmament and counts the very hairs of our heads. God created man in his image, and he liked what he saw. This world asks us all to conform to it’s standard of beauty, but your creator apparently does not care for conformity. Which standard of beauty matters most to you? When you look at your reflection, see a person who God loves so much that He sacrificed His son for you. He wants to lovingly lead you and show you your place and purpose in this world. He wants you to become the person he created you to be, who nobody else in the world is like.
