Dusty Mirrors

C.S. Lewis - Dusty Mirrors Quote, We reflect God
God “shows much more of Himself to some people than to others—not because He has favourites, but because it is impossible for Him to show Himself to a man whose whole mind and character are in the wrong condition. Just as sunlight, though it has no favourites, cannot be reflected in a dusty mirror as clearly as a clean one.” C.S. Lewis

God is everywhere bringing light.

When we aren’t in right relationship with God we are like dusty mirrors that neither receive nor reflect His Light. 

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord." Ephesians 5:8-10

Today let's "polish the mirrors of our lives" by asking God to show us new ways we can please Him.

  1. Hi Gail, going to go clean my mirror now, i want to more truly reflect His light. Great post
    God bless

    1. That's my daily project now...to clean my dusty mirror : )

  2. I really liked this image, Gail. Sin often clings to the mirror of our lives and keeps God's light from shining on us. Wonderful devotion in just a few words!

  3. I totally agree with this. I have been with christians who you wouldnt know were christians, but some walk into a room and light it up. I pray that I can mirror our saviour through clear glass. Great message thank you
