In the movie "Snow White", the evil queen looks in the mirror and asks who is the fairest in the land. She expected the mirror to tell her what she wanted to hear each time. While we don't have a "magic" mirror, we often look in the mirror to learn more about our appearances. Often, when looking at ourselves, we are more realistic than the queen and we see both beauty and flaws, but we need to look beyond our physical reflections!
Mirrors are helpful in allowing us to see and adjust our appearance, but our lives - our actions and words - are more important reflections of who we truly are and what we believe. As followers of God, we are held to His higher standard. We are called to live lives in God's love and truth. Sometimes, proclaiming God can cause us to be placed under additional scrutiny, but we should respond to God's calling. We should ask God to fill our hearts so the words and actions of our lives reflect His love and grace. We can call on God to help us put our hearts in the right place so our lives reflect Him!
Look at your life as a reflection of your heart and be sure that everything is in the right place!
Thank You for loving me. Please fill my heart and help me to reflect Your love throughout my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
