Today Karla and I delivered fudge to a few people. Their light has shined on me so I wanted to reflect a little light back in their direction. Yes it was cloudy and ultimately rainy today, so a little care package hopefully brightened their day.
How do you let your light shine? We all have something to give and share with others. You think you don't? Even kids give when they draw you a picture or make something out of nothing. No effort given is ever wasted. ''Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.''
["You are the light of the world" is one of those statements which should cause us to lift up our heads and make us realize what a glorious thing it is to be a Christian. The apostle Paul told the Ephesians, "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light" (Eph. 5:8). We not only have received the "light" of the gospel of Christ, we have become transmitters of that light.
Our light is meant to be seen by men. A Christian should be the same in his place of employment, the schoolroom or on the golf course as he is in the assembly of the saints. Jesus did not say, "You are the light of the church," but rather, "You are the light of the world." As we live in the world, our Christianity should be evident to all. Our good deeds ought to draw attention, not to ourselves, but to God.]-quote from the internet.
May you be a vessel of bright light to others in this world of darkness.
