In the musical Les Misérables, a memorable lyric states: “To love another person is to see the face of God.” As beings who are created in the image of God, this seems to be a true statement—that to look at one another should be one of the most compelling ways we see the face of God.
This isn’t the only place, though, where God reveals Himself right before our eyes. God’s footprints, fingerprints, and handiwork are littered throughout this world. It is a “crime” scene that even the most amateur CSI-devotee would be able to crack. The crime is a God who loves us so much as to put so much evidence of Himself in plain view if only we have the eyes to see.
Catherine of Siena once wrote, “Wisdom is so kind and wise that wherever you may look you can learn something about God. Why would not the omnipresent teach that way?”

Question: Where do you see God in our world? How has God’s face been revealed to you?
