The Fish Bowl

As a Christian there are times when I feel that my every action is being scrutinized by those on the outside, like I’m a fish in a bowl. Well as I read 2 Corinthians 4:1-6 today and verse 2 caught my eye.

“Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception…”

Sometimes I get disheartened at how un-Christlike I behave – snapping at a co-worker, cursing, etc. But this verse says it all: I’m trying. Those times where I act “un-Christian”, well that’s brutal honesty, the opposite of deception. I’m not perfect nor am I trying to be. My ambition is to try to please God each day with how I live my life, knowing that I will make mistakes along the way. I just hope that those on the other side of the fish bowl can see it that way too.
