I’m going to let it shine….
Be the light!
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16
- My light is but a little one, My light of faith and prayer; But lo! it glows like God’s great sun, For it was lighted there.
- I may not hide my little light; The Lord has told me so. ’Tis given me to keep in sight, That all may see it glow.
- Shine on, shine on, shine on bright and clear; Shine on, shine on now the day is here.
I have always loved this verse. My Dad often sang to me “This little light of mine” and he lived that personally.
Be the light today in someone’s life.
I was discussing with a friend about living the Christian life. My friend believes that we should avoid all things and all people who are not of like mind. But I disagree.
How can we witness if we isolate ourselves from others? It is truly the WWJD moment. My father used to say that we live by example and others should see Christ through us. I agree with that thinking.
Dad was on to something!
In this world, it is often difficult to see the glory at the end of a long and difficult journey. Don’t worry…it is there and you just have to follow your path and be a light in the darkness.
