DO THEY MISS US
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16 KJV
A pastor said “We should live lives that are so special that even when we leave a room we’re missed”. Do they miss us when we leave a room? O that you and I would glorify our Father by our kindness and love to one another. Are we making our Father happy or are we hurting Him and breaking His heart?
What about our family? Do they miss us when we leave a room? Many parents have said “I can’t wait until the summer is over and the children go back to school”. I wonder how many children can’t wait to go back to school because of the yelling, cursing and fighting in their house.
Many years ago, a little boy told me that he was afraid to go home because he was afraid of being yelled at, cursed and beaten. How that must have broke the heart of our precious Saviour when that little boy said that about his parents. That boy doesn’t live in a home, he lives is a house.
Home is where loves lives and a house is where people live. What about our home? Is it filled with love or is it just a house? May God help us to live so others will see and hear the unconditional love of Jesus in us in the things we do and the things we say. Do our children say they miss us when we leave a room?
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for the times when we hurt one another. Help us to live so others will always see Jesus in our smiles, in our actions and hear His love for them in our words. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
