Signs Signs Everywhere are Signs

One thing I hate and love during the election cycle are the yard signs. Some are plane jane, mundane campaign signs, some are witty, and others are plain tacky! Sadly one such tacky sign will make it into our yard, my husband blew 18.00 plus shipping yesterday on a campaign sign he ordered online. This is monumental, he has never ordered anything online and in the past has asked me to stop by the campaign office and pick up a sign for the yard. We won't even discuss the number of bumper stickers he ordered.

The Bible is filled with signs:

sings concerning the state of our heart
signs of the future - told to us prophetically
signs concerning Jesus' return

We Christians are walking campaign signs for Jesus. Are we loving people in public and at home? Or are we more like Crabs for Christ because we are so rude at the store or condescending to the cashiers? Are we the person who zooms into a parking place as someone else was waiting patiently to pull in? As we take the place everyone can see our fish sticker, our my boss is Jewish Carpenter sticker etc?

Let this be our sign: Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

I am with you...I can't wait for the election to be over...the signs and the commercials! AAARGH! We are a sign for Jesus whether we want to be or not! Amen to this post!

Good ponderings. The sign we wear for Christ--may we put on His love. I like that a lot. More than like it, I want to live it. Love, A

Loved your thoughts today. Too often I am reminded that I "might" have been a poor reflection of Him.

love,

What a thoughtful, insightful post Annette. I, too, want to be a good reflection of Jesus to the world around me. I'm afraid too often I fail, but it is my desire.
