  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

May 30, 2013 - All for God's Glory

By Agnes Abbey

Some years ago I was privileged to attend a Women's Retreat. After lunch I was spending my free time sitting on a hillside, communing with the Lord. As I looked across the valley, I noticed the trees on the hillside across the way. There were all kinds — maple, oak, elm, pine, spruce, etc.

While I was enjoying the gorgeous view, the Lord spoke to my heart that just as there are so many different kinds of trees there are different people — tall, short, fat, skinny, white, black, yellow, and all come from different backgrounds.

Trees are used in many various ways. Some are used to produce pulp for paper; some, for building homes. Some are Christmas trees, some are used for firewood, and some grow fruit — so many uses. We are all used in different ways in God's kingdom. Some of us play musical instruments, some sing, some speak, some are great prayer warriors. On and on the list could go.

First Corinthians 12:12-31 tells us how our body is made up of many parts and that each part is important. The parts we think are less honorable are treated with special modesty. It goes on to say that as members of the body of Christ, each believer is an important part. God has placed the parts in the Body as it pleases Him.

Perhaps you feel unimportant or believe you do nothing for the Lord. Remember, just as it takes a certain amount of time for a tree to be used for its purpose, God has a time for us to grow and mature in Him.

"Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31, NKJV).
