The Reflection’s On You

Text (2 Corinthians 3:18a) And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, (The New Revised Standard Version)

Thought Starters
I brought something today that you use every day. It’s a mirror. What do you do in front of a mirror?

You comb your hair, maybe brush you teeth. Check your smile. Look at how your clothes look on you?

What do you see in the mirror? It’s your reflection.

What’s on the other side of the mirror? It’s just the back. It seems sometimes that there should be something else, like maybe the back of your head.

I brought the mirror to remind us about fighting with others, or arguing with others. Do you ever fight with your brother or sister? I wonder?

Do you point your finger at them saying it’s their fault? Sometimes we do this without thinking or looking at the bigger picture.

Try doing this when showing your mom or dad who’s at fault. Pull out your mirror and double check the facts. Chances are you might be part of the problem.

Getting into an argument or a fight means there are two sides. Remember to look into the mirror before you accuse another. Sometimes the fault is a reflection on you.

Maybe it would help to think that Jesus is on the other side of the mirror looking at you.

Hymn-"Christian, Rise and Act Your Creed" – Francis Albert Rollo Russell

Prayer-Dear Lord, help us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Especially love our brothers and sisters. To look into the mirror before we blame others. Amen

Props-a mirror
