Theme: Image-Reflecting: Be Intentional
One educator that I respected once told me that when I am in the presence of another person, I am on holy ground. There's an image bearer right in front of me, so what am I going to do and how am I going to treat that other person?
Create affirming artwork. Surprise your coach, your pastor, your teacher, your parent, your sibling with a piece of artwork that tells them about something special that you see in them. The artwork could be a bookmark or a great picture that they can hang on their refrigerator.
Have your small children draw special pictures. Use these as wrapping paper, tucking inside them a piece of wrapped candy or silk flower, along with a note like “thanks for being so nice” or “you made my day.” Then keep these in your carry-all or purse and when you’re out together, share them with a polite cashier, a kind librarian, or wonderful friend. It shows children that everyone should be valued and that kindness is everywhere.
“Pay it forward”. If someone does something nice to you, find another person and show some kindness to them. Be intentional with your blessing.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
