2 Corinthians 3:12-18

When my heart is at peace, I can reflect God’s great love.

All of us are looking with unveiled faces at the glory of the Lord as if we were looking in a mirror. We are being transformed into that same image from one degree of glory to the next degree of glory. This comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. – 2 Corinthians 3:18 (CEB)

On my way to work this morning, I looked up at the sky. The rain during the night had stopped, and I could see blue sky between the parting clouds. The edges of the clouds were shining in the morning sun. I was moved by the great beauty of nature that God has created, and I slowed down to gaze at the sky.

Then I noticed a small puddle on the ground. It was surrounded by pebbles and mud. However, a portion of the beautiful sky above was reflected in the surface of the puddle. Then I thought, The beautiful sky is like God, and we humans are like the puddle!

In contrast to the huge sky, the puddle was tiny. Yet its tranquil surface reflected and showed me the beauty of the sky. What about me? Is my heart tranquil and peaceful? Not always. My heart is troubled from time to time.

On Sundays, I go to church and feel peaceful. But when I am back in everyday life, I sometimes find myself getting irritated. I want to be like the puddle — tiny but peaceful, reflecting God’s love and sharing it with others.

Dear God, thank you for offering your great love to us. Calm our souls, and use us to reflect your love. Amen.
