A Poor Reflection

 

 

 

It was a beautiful evening for a birthday party.

At least, I thought it was.

The sky was getting dark with clouds as the sun was fading away into night.

A semi-formal gathering, many people were dressed quite nicely.

Plates of food were placed neatly on a large table.

The multi-story historic home was probably close to a hundred years old.

Guests mingled from the indoor areas out to a quaint, stone paved patio with rod iron tables and chairs.

Flowers decorated the scene with just the right touch.

Drizzling, misty rain brought a coziness to the atmosphere.

What made the gathering extra special, however, was not the home, though it was attractive and pleasant.

It was the guests themselves and their purpose for attending that made the evening meaningful.

People there were from various walks of life.

Different ages and seasons of maturity were represented in each face.

They had all been invited because of one reason—they had at some point in time shared part of their journey with the one who was being honored that night.

Many were fellow believers whose faith in Jesus had brought them into acquaintance.

Won’t Heaven be that way?

We will know each other as we did here on Earth.

There will be thousands upon thousands, though, from ages past and beyond that we have never met, but we will all have one thing in common—we will all know Jesus, the One who is honored.

 

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.—I Corinthians 13:12
