YOU ARE BEING OBSERVED! A rehab center has a wide variety of people on staff. When you have a loved one there as a patient and you spend a lot of time with that patient you tend to become very observant of people and their skills, habits and attitudes. I will not discuss my observations in this text except to say there are the good and bad, those who encourage and those who need to seek other employment, those who have an attitude of servanthood and those who have an attitude of superiority.
My observations in the rehab facility cause me to reflect on how we Christians appear to others who observe us; and people are observing us. Even before people know we are Christians would our words and actions reflect the fact that we operate on Godly principles? If people were rating us just as human beings where would we appear on their rating scale? Jesus, in speaking of bringing His light to places where we are said, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven, (Matthew 5:16 NIV). People are watching us. What do they see?
