Windows and Mirrors
Wherever we live, we observe two common items made of glass: windows and mirrors. We look through a window but at a mirror. A mirror simply reflects what is in front of it. We look, in a mirror to see how we look, but we don’t need a mirror to see how other people look; we need a window. Our life style can be like a window or like a mirror. “Window” people look beyond themselves, at other people, at the world. “Mirror” people see only themselves. Christ and His followers are “window” people. Through Christian stewardship they find life’s highest joy in helping support God’s work in the world through His Church.
