WHEN IT’S TIME TO GROW UP
Children have a tendency to say, “Look at me!” On the tricycle– “Look at me go!” On the trampoline– “Look at me bounce!” On the swing set– “Look at me swing!” Such behavior is acceptable for children. Yet many adults spend their grown-up years saying the same thing. “Look at me drive this fancy car!” “Look at me make money!” “Look at me wear provocative clothes, or use big words, or flex my muscles. Look at me!”
Isn’t it time we grew up? We were made to live a life that says, “Look at God!” People are to look at us and see not us but the image of our Maker. This is God’s plan. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “We…are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” Because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!
