take that Christian bumper sticker off the back of your car first. That was my thought today when a van with a sticker on the back glass of a popular Christian school in our area went flying by me.
This driver is making themselves look like a hypocrite.
This person is making the school look bad.
And this person is giving Christianity a bad name. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, and we all make ourselves and the things we represent look bad from time to time. But racing down the highway at the speed of light with a Jesus bumper sticker on the back of your car screams, “Look at me. I’m a hypocrite and all Christians are like me.”
Whether we like it or not we are all ambassadors. We are ambassadors for what we believe in or for what we say we believe in. First of all, we are ambassadors for ourselves. Then, it extends to our family. If you are a homeschooler, you are an ambassador for all homeschools. If you claim to be a Christian, you are an ambassador for Christianity and for Christ.
You may not realize it, but people are always watching. Not only do your actions reflect on you, they also reflect on everything you represent. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you are an official representative. Would you want you as an ambassador?
