Vanity tags are fun to read and figure out. Some know vanity tags as simply 'personalized' license plates. Some have messages about the persons hobby, their passions in life, career, fun statement, or many have Christian things on them. Some I have seen recently are FINS, RME FLYR, N2FLYIN, MOMX2, GOD24/7, 3 JOHN 4, NOT ONE, EYEDOC, BURPEE, IHEAL,BACPKN, SKYDIVE, TN FAN, JETGUY, RUT RHO, COOL GAL, CUTYPIE, GRANDMA, SETCX2, PATRIOT, COACH, SEXY1, PAID4, ISELL, RUNR, and JOHN 3 16. These tags help the owner of the vehicle express themselves.
If you drive a car with a Christian tag on it or even a Christian bumper sticker you need to be careful to remember that you are a witness for Jesus so watch how you drive and act when you are in your car. If you show anger, break the law, or cut drivers off, you certainly are not representing the Lord very well.
How do you represent Christ in your daily life outside of your automobile or truck? If you had to hang a sign around your neck what would it say? What are your passions? What is first place in your life?
Matthew 6:19-24 says “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
Live as if everywhere you go people can tell you live for the Lord and love Jesus. Not in a self righteous way but by being kind to those around you. What sign would others put around your neck? Something to think about.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for each opportunity you give me during my day to show your love to those who you place in my path. It can be a simple smile. I want my passion for you to shine out to others. In Jesus name. Amen!
