As water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart.
Short and simple, but this verse from Proverbs seems worth a closer look. Again, we are reminded we cannot tell what is in a person's heart by looking at them. I am reminded of all of the funerals I have had the honor of attending as pianist. Often I thought I knew the person, from church, or may have only known them very superficially. Each and every time I was amazed to hear of each life, dreams, successes and failures, how they loved, and how they followed Christ. Their lives reflected their love. I have often thought about this very concept. Does my life reflect my love for Christ and my love for others? It needn't be showy or advertised, but I would like my life to be driven by love.
Holy Lord, thank you for your Word. You continue to teach me, day after day, and I am grateful. Amen
