Make a Mark

Leaves fall in a cascading shower of red, yellow and brown. At this time of year a jacket is a necessity for some. But for this Floridian a jacket is a novelty. It almost becomes a fashion statement.

And I wonder if it's the same with Christianity? Do we sometimes wear religion as a necessity or a novelty, depending on what kind of statement we want to make?

So I pull out my pocket knife to carve my initials on this tree called life. I want to make my mark, but not for my own namesake. I want to glorify Christ with my life through a love relationship with Him, so I keep on carving:

L.S. + J.C.

Do you want to take a turn? Go ahead, make your mark!
