Today, I’m thankful for mirrors. But not actually the glass kind, the metaphorical kind. Yesterday, I experienced a mirror. I had taken my son to work at a local restaurant and decided to stick around for a snack. As I munched and read my book, there was a man across the aisle. He was a very angry man. It was quite apparent he was angry that they brought his food out in a to-go bag even though he was planning on eating at the table. Then he was mad because they forgot something. Then he started grousing out loud, “Are they going to make me get up? Yes. I can’t believe it. They’re going to make me get up.” I don’t know. Perhaps he had a long hard day of work and just needed to rest. I just know this. I was looking in the mirror. That is exactly how I behave when I am inconvenienced. It was ugly. I don’t want to look like that. I am so glad God gave me the opportunity to see what I look like.
My goal today is to avoid looking like that. Even when I am inconvenienced, I don’t want to look or sound that ugly. I want to glorify God.
Glorious God, thank You for the mirrors. Thank You for letting me see me. Help that man overcome whatever is angering him. Help me have peace and love and humility. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
