Created to be a Moon

Like the moon is a reflection of the sun, we are called to be a reflection of the Son.

One day I would love to have my own photography business. I would love to travel the world and take pictures, have them posted in magazines, and have the honor of photographing weddings, engagements, and portraits.

But even if my goal was to have the biggest and best photography business it would be too small of a goal. Why? If that was my only goal in life, and even if I accomplished that goal, I would die having lived a useless life.

So what should my goal be?

“Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for My glory, whom I formed and made.”Isaiah 43:7 (emphasis added)

We are created to bring glory to God. Like the moon that reflects the sun, we are created to reflect God’s glory. That should be our main goal in life. All other goals in life should be prayerfully made to meet the main goal.

It may feel sometimes like our gifts and talents are worthless, but God has given them to us for a reason. We must only pray that He will reveal to us how to use them to reflect Christ.

Like the moon is a reflection of the sun, we are called to be a reflection of the Son.
