SIGNS

Sign outside a local church:

Overseas or over the fence: YOU are God's missionary.

I just thought, that was so awesome. You see, I know will never be more than an ordinary wife, mother, friend....but....I can still be used by God! Wherever I am, I can show His mercy, His grace, His compassion, His love, His redemption. At the grocers, at the local Goodwill, the Dairy Queen, the gas station, the doctor's office...they are ALL my mission field. I may not go into the deepest parts of Africa, I may not go in the war-torn middle east, I may never see France, BUT...I can shine the light that I have before all that I come into contact with.

"YOU are the light of the world.....Let your light so shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven." Matt. 5:14, 15
Pin It!

You never know who is watching you and when they are watching! We are to be doers of the Word, so the watchers can tell by our actions we are followers of Christ! OUCH! That is tough!
