A Reflection

“Oh wow, look at that mountain peak. Where is it?” I asked.

Larry and I had enjoyed wandering around Mt. Rainier National Park, in Washington. We viewed Mount Rainier from different scenic areas as we drove through the park. The gigantic Redwood trees towered above us on the Grove of the Patriarchs Trail. We stopped to see Box Canyon, and through the trees we saw another snow-covered mountain. The information on a sign post said this was Mt. Adams, forty miles south of us.

Both Mount Rainier and Mount Adams can be seen from a great distance. Their snow caps glisten in the sun. These two single peaks stand apart from the other mountains in this area. Scientists say both peaks are former volcanoes.

In thinking about Mt. Adams and how the reflection of the sun could be seen for miles, I want my life to reflect “The Son.” When people look my way, hopefully they see His glory. Reflecting God’s kindness, forgiveness, grace, and humility for other people’s benefit are attributes worth striving for.

“And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)
