"As water reflects a face, so a person's heart reflects the person." How is your heart these days? Take a minute and really reflect on this question. How is your heart? Your heart toward others? Toward your family? Toward God? Toward Jesus? Is your heart full of love? Overflowing with love?

This really stands out for me today ... I ask myself this question very often, just to be sure that I live with an open and honest heart. My heart towards my family, relatives, God and Jesus is a question that doesn't really have to be asked. Towards them my heart is definitly overflowing with love. Thinking about them makes my heart glow, thinking about them makes me feel happy and I want to treasure them in my heart forever. But then there are people that dislike me or people that I have a heart time liking. I always ask God for strength to love them. He'll help me to love them, He'll help me to find a place in my heart for them. It's not easy, but with God's help I know I can accomplish this. It's important to have a good heart ... indeed, it reflects your person."

Only by being holy can we see God because is God is holy. When Jesus comes back, he will rid the earth and heavens of everything without a foundation in God.

14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. As I think of this warning, I think of the people or government that I don’t like and yet I am asked to live in peace with them. But perhaps the focus is on being holy myself rather than the object of my attention. Indeed without His grace, it can’t be done.

Hebrews 12:14 reminds me to constantly make an effort to get along with others and live a holy life. Others will look at my actions and be able to see the word of God reflected through me.
