“I’ve seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.”
— Tracy Chapman
For as long as I could remember I have always believed in angels and the messages of hope they convey in times of great despair. Perhaps it is a fallacy to believe that a mere human being could process such grace and dignity that of an angel on earth. However, it is true that an ordinary person can do great works of inspiration by simply being a loving and compassion being. Ordinary people making a great difference in the world without notice are truly the angels of the earth. In the bible Jesus Christ says, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14.
Perhaps, ordinary people give a great gift of hope, faith and love as they have chosen a path led by Christ. A great illustration of this is the Ebola crisis, a Good Samaritan story relived as those who are fighting this epidemic on the frontlines demonstrate of their selfless act courage so that one day that healing come to all those infected by this horrible disease. Therefore, ordinary people who are doing God’s work every day and sometimes goes unnoticed let today be the moment that we pay homage those ordinary angels. Let them know we desperately need them to continue their life’s purpose of message and inspiration. Finally, it is their example that inspires me and as a Christian, on my own path I pray that I can do a fraction of good that these ordinary angels have done.
Have a blessed week,
