“The Lord God is my strength , and He will make my feetÂ like hinds’ feet, and He will make me to walk upon high places. – Habakkuk 3:19
Recently I looked out the window and noticed a commotion in the birdÂ bath. A blue Jay was taking a jubilant and unrestrained bath. Â WaterÂ was splashing everywhere, and I wondered if there would be any left inÂ the bath when he finished his procedure.
My question was soon answered as he flew away and aÂ smaller bird took his place. Â The delight of this bird seemed evidentÂ as the water sprayed here and there – going every where. There is noÂ doubt that the larger bird made a bigger splash than the smaller bird,Â but they each enjoyed their special time in that birdbath.
As Christians step into the birdbath of Godâ€™s love and HisÂ truth, they will each make a splash upon the lives of others. The wellÂ know ones, such as famous evangelists, ministers and authors make aÂ big splash as they share their faith and invite others into the joyousÂ relationship with Jesus.
However, the splash of the little knownÂ Christian is just as important in Godâ€™s eyes. It is in Â the lifeÂ splash of each Christian mother that a child is nurtured in Godâ€™s loveÂ and acceptance. Â It is in the splash of life where each ChristianÂ father exemplifies Godâ€™s love and forgiveness. And it may be in theÂ example of either parent where Godâ€™s mercy is exhibited and HisÂ personal presence is shared.
It is wonderful that God uses all of us. Let us neverÂ forget that it is not the size of the splash that matters, it is theÂ fact that we touch another in the Name and for the sake of Christ.
