I may look something like this...
The "Please don't talk to me because I have to get my groceries and get home" face.
This is the "my two year old has thrown the same can of vegetables out of the cart three times and I just want to go home now" face.
Lately, I've noticed how unapproachable I tend to be. I mean, would you want to start a conversation with either of those people? I certainly wouldn't. You know who I would want to walk up and talk to?
This guy! There's a face that is approachable! Happy and doesn't care who sees.
When I was younger, I used to think that as a pastor's family we lived in a fishbowl, and we had to be those perfect little goldfish. As the years have gone by, I've really gotten to think about that, and it's not just people in ministry who live in a fishbowl. As Christians, we live in a fishbowl that the world views every day. Unfortunately, I think most people are viewing this guy.
You've got the joy of the Lord in your heart. Everyone that meets you should be viewing this face in your fishbowl.
So, when you go out this weekend, remember that people are watching you wherever you go. And you can't be a witness to them when they're seeing a grouchy puffer fish in your fishbowl. No matter how many times your two year old throws the veggies out of the cart, smile! You're being watched.
