Photo-A-Day: Mail

“You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” [2 Corinthians 3:2-3 NIV]

My photo-a-day topic today is mail. I thought I could talk about how mail has progressed from the hand-written, post in the mailbox, kind of letters, to the electronic and instantaneous mail which fills our inboxes every day. But, then I opened my Bible this morning and read the above Scripture for my daily reading. Co-incidence? I think not.

I think it wonderful that I can be a living letter. That, by my life I give honour, not only to the Lord, but also to those who have input so much teaching and ministry into me over the years. I am some of the fruit of their hard labours – hopefully people see me as good fruit.

In the same way, I pray that my ministry will be reflected in my children and in those whom I have mentored or input in one way or another over the years. All the glory goes to the Lord of course, for without Him working through me, nothing would be worthwhile or lasting.

This must be the best kind of mail, I think. Being a living letter, written on human hearts by the Spirit of God. What do you think of this concept?

  1. As a writer, I love it that God uses words like ‘author’ to describe himself, as well as ‘Word’ and that we are His ‘letters.’ And I love it that my heart is His ‘tablet.’ That is really cool 🙂

    • It is very cool, isn’t it. And I love it that I happened to read about it on the same day as my mail topic. 🙂 A God-incidence methinks.
