“The One Who calls you to a life of righteousness is the One, Who by our consent lives that life through you.” –Major Ian Thomas

     Recently my family and I were in line at a drive-through restaurant. We placed our order and drove up to the window. Just before it was time to pay the cashier, we noticed they had openly placed their sanitation grade for all the drivers to see. When we saw the low-score of 72 we were somewhat disgusted. I didn’t want to inconvenience the workers by driving off, but at the same time I didn’t want to buy food from a restaurant in such poor-working conditions. I kindly told the cashier to cancel our order and told her the reason why.

As I drove away I thought about my own sanitation grade. Do I live in such a way that makes people want to drive-off? Is my spirit inviting? Is my heart clean? Do others see the grace of God at work in my life?

I thank God we are not assigned a grade to be displayed before the world; but in reality, we are to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. People are watching us, and by our actions and reactions they determine if they want what we have.

Whether we realize it or not, many people make decisions about Christ by the way we display Him. Live pure, live clean, live holy and you’ll be able to serve all those who come through your line.
