I saw this quote on pinterest:
"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ." ~Gandhi~

(This is going to [hopefully] be a short one--I have to begin studying for exams).

Gandhi is famous for passive, civil disobedience. He is often called the "Father of India". He was raised a Hindu, and claimed to be a "Hindu, Muslim, and a Christian as well". He liked the idea of Christianity. He liked the idea of Christ--a God who would love us so much He would die for us. But then Gandhi looked at the people who claim to be followers of Christ. Those that are supposed to be like Christ. He didn't like what he saw. He didn't notice any resemblance. I know we are not perfect, and we are human. But shouldn't there be an obvious difference between those of us that claim to have Christ living inside of us and those that don't? When people look at you, who do they see?

Your life is a reflection of something. Is it of your desires, wants, plans, dreams, etc.? Or do you reflect Christ?
