One of the genre of shows I like to watch is the detective series such as criminal minds, crime scene investigation, etc. As detectives aim to determine the perpetuator of the crime they are investigating, they try to find a fingerprint and determine as to whom that fingerprint belongs to.
When we touch something, we leave our fingerprints on the object that we touch. In like manner, if God has touched our lives with his love, grace and forgiveness, when we come under the investigative scrutiny of the world around us, will they find the fingerprint of God (characterized by his love, grace and forgiveness) in our lives.
Points to ponder:
Whose fingerprints will people find in our life? Do people see the fingerprint of God in your life and mine? In other words, would they find love, grace and forgiveness in our lives? Let us humble ourselves under the mighty hand of The Lord, casting all our care upon him, for he cares for us (1 Peter 5:6-7)
1 Peter 5:6-7(KJV)
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
