I’m old enough to remember back before iPhones, iPads….computers for that matter, ever existed. In those days if we wanted to stay connected to one another we had to write letters. Finding a letter from my grandparents, a friend, or other family members in the mailbox was always exciting! Those pages were filled with the latest news, questions about our lives, and lots and lots of love. It wasn’t unusual to read them over and over again just to feel like we were right there with the ones who sent it.
In today’s world where people seem to talk to each other less and less, it occurs to me that we are the letters from God to those around us. We were created to tell the Good News. When our words, the activities we’re involved in, and the way we treat others are different from the world, it may spur questions about why, and of course, love is the greatest thing we can pass on to those around us!
What letters do your life and mine write to the world? We’ve been “signed, sealed, and delivered” to be a way to connect someone in need to God’s love and saving grace. And as we share that over and over, the more we’ll feel we’re right in the presence of Him who sent us!
