Mid-Week Inspiration: Streets Is Watching

barack obama

The other day I had an associate come to me with tears in her eyes thanking me. She told me that my spirit changed an atmosphere and brought her closer to God. Her heartfelt expression touched me because I didn’t feel that I’ve had a whole lot of conversation with her about my faith, yet somehow my walk did the talking.

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

This alerted me that we have to be mindful of our behavior. People are watching us constantly; our demeanor, how we speak to others, the way we handle situations; these all play a part in how others perceive us and the God we serve. And we never know who we may be dealing with.

There are so many skeptics in this world. They choose not to believe on account of how Christians have treated them or because they see believers living in a way that seems outside of the will of God. We have a lot on our shoulders as those who know we live for a forgiving Father who sees past our sin and notices our potential. We have to beware of the common error of yelling at the clerk who rudely messes up our order ten times seemingly on purpose or flipping the bird to the guy who cuts us off on the interstate. The streets is watching and we cannot give an easy opening for non-believers, or those on the fence to completely distrust God.

Challenge yourself to walk away with a smile when your character is put to the test. Do not allow the enemy’s tactics to cost someone’s salvation. Strengthen your mind today so that you can lead others to a greater relationship with the Father we rely on.

    It’s been a while since I stopped past and checked out your blog. Great read as always. The way the country… the world is behaving right now… The spirit of Cain is among us strong. I saw an article today where a man was killed for not holding the door open for a woman at a McDonalds. We need more people to walk in their faith than ever. People need to see the good and God in people.

      @Coolio Mannn if you aren’t so right on with this. The current state of our country is showing the true hearts of everyone and as children of God we have to make sure our hearts remain in line with His mission. -Renee
