License Plates

Thursday, May 10, 2012

In the last few weeks, I've seen two interesting license plates:

They made me smile. 

Then they made me think . . . Could I live with a license plate like that? Would I measure up to the statement once I emerged from the tinted interior? Even now, do I live up to the words I say behind closed doors? Do I fully carry the words that I write on this dark screen out into the sunlit world? 

What if I wore the word "Christian" around my neck all the time? What if it was written on my car? Would I act any different?

Would you?

Something to think about.

  1. Good question!  

  2. It's a valid question for each of us to ask ourselves.  I hope my actions would be in line with Christian.  It would be a good question to ask at the end of each day...DID my actions...

  3. hmmm interesting question ... it might change a few minds about what might be a christian in my town...haha...smiles...

  4. Good question. Would I? Paul says we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. May it be so. Blessings!

  5. Driving alone - the true Litmus test of one's Christianity! What we do in our car alone before God...well that has been a place God has transformed me over twenty or so years! I could tell stories! Good pondering. I guess living it out is a process of Grace...all grace. ;) Thanks for visiting! 

  6. I'm really working to live up to the person I present on the page. On the page, she is honest, but the emotions are processed and packaged to be presentable to the public. There are so many moments in my life when I am less than presentable. Yesterday, my kids were wearing me down. Crying and whining and it was so loud and difficult to focus... and I noticed how I kept telling myself to breathe and concentrate and stay calm. And by the grace of God, I did it. But wow- it was tough! Happy Mothers Day, Courtney.

  7. i know. i've been wondering these thoughts too, since reading "Jesus is my Savior" printed on the back of someonen's car this past week. i guess the same goes with blogging... do we live up to the person we describe in our posts? love your heart, friend. thank you for this.

  8. In a sense, I do wear the label Christian all the time. And no, I don't live up to it. But my Jesus does. I continually bring him my messes and my sin, and He always, always lives up to His promises. I'm humbled by grace. 

    So grateful for your words and thoughts. So glad you've linked.
