Smile for the Camera

I attended the Kentucky state high school boys basketball tournament in Lexington last week. During timeouts, the camera crew would often zoom in on certain fans and put their face up on the big screen. They called this feature “Smile for the Camera”.

It was interesting to see the different reactions people had. Some would cheer even louder when they saw themselves on the big screen. Others would simply smile and wave. Some would try to hide from the camera.

Many people were never aware that the camera had focused on them. They would go on doing whatever they were doing, whether it was cheering or sitting there with a bored look on their face.

Jesus says that God is looking for people who will worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). In a sense, we are always on camera, whether we realize it or not. Therefore, we should always try to live a life that is pleasing to God. I believe that we smile for God whenever we recognize his presence and direct our attention to him.

Let’s all smile for the camera today!
