The first question of our faith is, “who is God?” The second question is, “who am I?”
One of the ways the Bible tries to answer those questions is with the simple truth that we are all made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), leading to another question, can we see God in one another?
When I look in the mirror in the morning, I see my own face, just as it is. Sometimes I wonder, if this is how I see me, how does God see me? Every morning this week as you comb your hair and brush your teeth, spend just a moment looking at your own face. Where do you see traces of suffering or scars of the past? Where do you see hope and energy and laughter and life? Where do you see evidence of God at work? Ask God use your life to show someone else what God’s redeeming love looks like.
As you go about your day, look for evidence of God in the lives of others. Where do you see compassion and care, love and mercy at work?
Take a few moments at the end of each day to write down your observations. How did you feel God at work in your life today? How did you see God at work in the life of another?
I’d love to see some of your observations. Feel free to write about your experiences in the comments section below!
