Reflecting God

Woods . Rolling hills. Rocks. Narrow, winding roads. Ponds reflecting the surrounding beauty. An individual here and there stopping beside the road to take in the tranquil scene. All these are common sights along the New England countryside.

There is something especially stirring about a calm, glistening body of water reflecting the beauties of nature. There is a sacred feeling about it. And we want to linger there. A favorite psalm in the Bible directly connects God with the imagery of "still waters," saying, "The Lord is my shepherd .... he leadeth me beside the still waters." The reflection provided by quiet waters symbolizes man's reflection of Spirit, God—and this spiritual reflection is the true identity of each of us, the identity we should mentally linger in, so to speak, and express wherever we go. There is nothing more refreshing and renewing than to reflect the nature of God, since He is Life, Truth, and Love.

Violence? No. God's power? Yes!
