Travelling has changed for me. I no longer so much desire to tour places, see building or landscapes. And I think the book of Genesis suggests why when after 6 days of creating earth, God created man.
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, ….” (Genesis 1:26 NIV)
And this is what I would say about my travels over the last few months:
God made Lilongwe and it was dusty and alive and it was good.
God made Zomba and it was a little magical and elevated and it was good
And then God made Cardiff and it was cultured and energetic and it was good.
And then God made the Cotswolds and they were open and quaint and they were good.
And then God made London and it was old and new and it was good.
God made people and they were VERY good. These cities, countries and places were made by God. But these people were made in His image.
These people welcomed me into their houses and showed Gods character of hospitality.
They shared their resources with me and showed Gods generosity
We talked late into the night and told stories of Gods salvation in our lives, revealing His faithful nature.
They laughed with me and showed Gods humour.
Thanks to the people who have welcomed and loved me in such a way that they have revealed the image of the creator.
