The duck swam by the fishing dock on the pond in the
evening twilight. The light and the ripples in the water make patterns of movement. We are to watch for the currents of God's moving and love.
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
A person entering a room can send out spiritual signals much as this duck changes the surrounding waters by his presence. I see peaceful ripples, but some people bring strife and turmoil into a room.
Rom 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
Jesus sent his disciples out two by two.

Eph 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
