Some people are simply put, beautiful people. They are warm, caring, funny, quirky, insightful, and when you are around them you smile. It’s as if something about them seems alive, and gives you life too. Or better put some people pull good things out of you: good stories, good conversations, good connections, and a good time.
My hairdresser is one of these people. She is awesome. Not only can she cut hair, which she does amazingly, but the whole time is fun. I feel better for having seen her and talked with her. For most appointments I have whether its the bank, dentist, or optometrist I have a sense of apprehension. I don’t like going, I delay it and put it off. She’s different, and I actually like getting my hair cut.
The bible says that we’re all made in God’s image. That humanity has been marked by God, and that everyone has the chance to reveal God. Some people do this through their everyday simple interactions, in how they laugh, care, and smile. I see this a lot in my hairdresser, and its easy to see.
The question is do people see God in you?
Are you someone who gives life to others, who through grace pulls good things out of them, who makes people feel better for having known and connected with you? Do you reveal the God who is about love, life, and grace to others? And maybe it’s not hard to do if we’re just intentional. We’re already made in his image, we just need to decide to reveal it.
So today reveal God’s image, and person by how you act. Show grace, love, and life to others.
And maybe go get your hair cut…
