Reflecting Jesus

She was sitting on the hillside overlooking the lake. The pale blue sky was clear and the sun shone brightly on that cool morning. The trees, with their brilliant colors, reflected in the calm lake as she read her Bible and talked with God.

She was quietly listening to God as she took in the beauty of His creation, when something about the trees' reflection in the water suddenly caught her attention. She noticed that the trees closest to the water gave the clearest, sharpest reflection. The further away the tree, the more blurred the reflection.

God taught her a valuable lesson that morning. It is a lesson we all need to heed --- The closer we are to Jesus, the more like Him we are made by His sanctifying work, and the clearer His reflection in us becomes!
