Are You God's Mother?
"But we Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works with us, we become more and more like him."1
Curtis and Paul Jones wrote how, on a bitterly cold day in a western city, a small boy stood shivering on a steel grate in the sidewalk. He was very poorly dressed and obviously a child of the street. A well-dressed woman passerby noticed the lad and began to talk to him. Sensing his need, she took him to a clothing store and had him completely outfitted suitable for the weather—including cap, scarf, and gloves.
The lad was so grateful he couldn't thank her enough. As they parted he turned back to ask, "Are you God's mother?"
Surprised, the woman replied, "Oh, no! I'm just a child of God."
Whereupon the smiling lad remarked, "I knew you were related."
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to reflect your love so that the beauty of Jesus will be seen in me—always in all ways. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
