Have you ever created a masterpiece? Maybe put together a mouthwatering dessert that is picture perfect.
Or painted a picture that would’ve made Van Gogh jealous.
That would be a doozie wouldn’t it?
Anyway point being, we all are part of creation, and whether we try or not, we end up creating something good, something in-between, or something bad.
So, wondering if you have taken time to think what sort of atmosphere you are creating.
As soon as I enter a home, church, office, restaurant, or just about anywhere, I can immediately tell something about the atmosphere of the place.
Those present give off vibes. Some are good, some are in-between, some are…you know…and so without even realizing it, how we act sets the mood.
I’ll admit to my bad days. I may occasionally wake up on the wrong side of the bed, but even if I’m not feeling it, I try to curb my emotions. I will only give out nasty looks once a while, and only before I get my first cup of coffee consumed. (That way when I apologize I can blame it on the lack of caffeine, saying “I really, really needed coffee that morning!”)
Check out the air around you; is it pleasant, mild-mannered, enjoyable, and noticeably civil?
In the Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us that “Whoever is in Christ is a new creation; the old things have passed away, behold, new things have come.”
Whatever may be going on in your life, know that new things will come about, old things will fade away, and whoever lives with Christ, lives forever.
Choose to become a new creation.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
Have you ever given this any thought?
