If you would look into Jesus' eyes, what would you see? I would see kindness, passion, and love. I picture them blue like the ocean, and I can see the happiness that makes me smile from the top of my head to the soles of my feet—such joy. Sunshine. Warm and cozy. Safe. Loved. Right now, typing this, I am smiling. I feel secure. I have no worries. I don't have a care in the world. I don't need anyone but him. I want to fall into his arms. I know, there, that I will be safe. That he will take care of me. I don't need anyone else but him. I want him to kiss my forehead and tell me I've done a good job. Don't we all want this?
Then I look in my mirror and look at my eyes, and what do I see? I should see the same thing. When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we are born again, and we are to be like him. When I look into the mirror, do I see his eyes? Do I see the world as he sees it? Do I have the same compassion and kindness in my eyes for others? Would I put a smile on someone's face just by making eye contact? That is what I strive for. I dig deep into my soul to find something good in everyone. It doesn't matter if you are a friend, a relative, a stranger, or an enemy. He treated people the same way, no matter who they were. He healed people that most people thought did not deserve to be healed. Think of people in the Bible that he blessed. I want him to look at me like that. I want him to know that I'm trying. I want him to love me like no one else ever has, for his love is unconditional. His love overlooks all my faults. His passion goes above and beyond.
Allow the Bible, God's holy Word, to mirror back to you how you should not only be seen by others but how we all are to behave as Jesus did. He is our mirror. Please pass this on.
