I had punched out for my lunch break, and was walking across the parking lot when something caught my attention on the sidewalk. A lady had in her earbuds and singing loudly and proudly to the song she alone could hear. Yet, the guy walking with her, who did not have any earbuds, was singing her song.
Each one of us influences those around us. Whatever we are listening to, we will “sing,” and those around us will be influenced by our song. There are many people in this world, in your families, and even in our churches who are not hearing directly from God Himself; but they ARE hearing His voice indirectly from others who are plugged in and tuned in to God’s channel.
What are we “singing?” What will others hear?
Think about that. I want to be a conduit for others to connect with what God is downloading into me, until they can learn to hear from God themselves.
Just like this man began singing a song that he was hearing second hand, he still sang it loud and proud right along side her even though SHE was the source of music for him. Sometimes, WE are the only God source that people will ever hear.
This is a great reminder to stay tuned into The Source of Life so that we are “singing” Godly influences over those around us.
In other words, “Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ” I Corinthians 11:1.
