What Wake Are You Leaving?

Wherever you go, you are leaving a wake in your midst. What kind of a wake is it?

You know what I’m talking about. There are times when we leave the presence of someone and feel a deep peace and happiness. We felt loved and encouraged by the interaction. We hope to spend more time in that person’s presence. And then, there are times when we leave someone and a bad taste remains in our mouth. We felt discouraged and unloved in some way by the way the person interacted with us. Something was just “off.” Whatever may have happened, the interaction isn’t something we wanted to repeat. In each of our interactions, we are leaving a wake. That wake has a ripple effect on others and the way that they interact in the next part of their day. Be careful how you are steering your “boat.”

Dear Heavenly Father, help us to examine our ways of relating with others. Please grant that we may be able to love others as You do and to see them with the eyes that You see them. Thank You for the great love that You lavish on all of us! We pray all this in the name of Jesus Your Son. Amen.
