Show God to Others

Verse 1 of our Bible Reading says, “God stands in the assembly of the gods.” Sometimes the word “gods” was used to mean “rulers.” So this verse may be talking about the leaders of Israel.
Probably these leaders were men who took care of court cases and gave out punishment. But verse 2 tells us that these leaders were not doing a good job. “How long will you judge unfairly and show special favors to the wicked?” These men were supposed to show God’s will to other people. But instead, they were not being faithful to God.
As Christians we represent God on earth. We should show God’s love, mercy and hope to other people. We should do this when we are with our families, when we are at work and when we are out in the community.
Sometimes it is hard to represent God to the world. But 2 Corinthians 3:5 reminds us that God will give us strength and wisdom so we can show Him to other people.
