There’s another concept that I like. It’s the idea that the face of a good friend is a mirror. Have you ever had a friend like that? One who, if you were troubled, when you looked at them and they saw your expression, their face began to look troubled too? Or when you are extremely happy, their countenance changes immediately upon seeing your smile? Those are true friends. They are the ones that truly understand you.
What do people look at when they see you? Do they see judgment? Condemnation? Skepticism? Or do they see love, mercy and grace?
Take Away: It would be great if the first and last thing I saw in the mirror was God’s amazing grace.
