† Mirror Mirror on the Wall

When you look at others, what do you see? Do you automatically see their flaws, or do you focus on what their potential could be when given the right guidance? Do you look at their gender or race and form an opinion of them without even speaking one word to them? When you look at yourself in the mirror—what do you see?

I remember as a little girl, a fairytale that was read to me about Snow White. In this fairytale, the queen would seek wisdom from a mirror she had. She would say—“Mirror, Mirror on the wall—who’s the fairest of them all?” One day the mirror told her that Snow White was and from that day forward, because of the vanity in the queen’s heart, she sought to kill the competition, so that there would be none better in the land than she thought herself to be.

Sometimes people in their quest to appear greater than they are, look at others in a negative way. Taking a look at others with a judgmental or critical eye is what we will ultimately see of them and most times our perception is untrue. If we do that, we will never be able to see them as God does.

“Think on This” for a moment if you will. It may be high-time for us to take a look at ourselves in the mirror—and compare the reflection we see to what God sees. God does not see our outward appearance—no He looks on the heart. He’s not impressed by our beauty or our smile. Instead, He’s moved by what lies deep within our hearts. When you have time from time-to-time, take a look at yourself in the mirror and judge how you think God really sees you when He looks deep into your heart. Let’s not be focused on the stuff we show on the outside as a reflection of who we are. But let’s be honest and work with God, so that the reflection others see in us—is Him! (Read 1 Samuel 16:7 KJV)
