I seriously want your feedback!! Every Christmas season, I do a blog series about looking for Jesus & I post goofy pictures of baby Jesus in various settings, to reinforce the reminder to look for Jesus in the busy-ness of the Holidays.
So where would you like to see Jesus in the upcoming Holidays? Please give me your suggestions in the comments below, on FB, twitter, etc. Last year, I took Jesus to the ICU at a local hospital, He drove with me in my car (Jesus take the wheel), I perched Him on a park bench & did lots of other creative things. So what would you suggest for me to do this year, in the theme of looking for Jesus?
When my kids were younger, we used to play hide & seek. I had boatloads of fun coming up with all kinds of creative places to hide (in cupboards, under cushions, across chairs, etc). Hide & seek is a fun game but not fun in the context of relationships. Marriages, friendships & families can quickly unravel when a person hides & gets secretive about their life.
In the context of our relationship with God, hiding has never been helpful, particularly in light of the knowledge that God knows everything, so hiding with God is pointless. Consider Adam’s efforts to hide in the Garden of Eden – it didn’t really work. While I can appreciate that it’s not always safe to be thoroughly transparent with everyone all the time, let’s be mindful in our relationship with God to be vulnerable, transparent, available & present. Don’t hide with God 🙂
