BE A LIGHT
The world is dark place. People around you are stumbling and need a light.
Have you ever lit a candle in a dark room? It is amazing how just a little light can make such a big difference.
You may think your light is small, but it can make a huge difference in other people’s lives.
MATTHEW 5:14-16, NIV
14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 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.
16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
This week light a candle in a dark room. Watch the flame as it flickers and illuminates the room. Your life is meant to be like this!
God invites you to pray a prayer like the one below, trusting that He will use your life to be a beautiful light to the world around you.
“Jesus, thank you for inviting me to let my light shine! You said, “…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
I long to spread your light and truth everywhere I go, Oh Lord! Help me to do this by living boldly and being quick to speak of your truth. Father, I choose to live differently than the world around me today and am excited to give people a reason to ask about this hope that is inside of me! (1 Peter 3:15). To Your Honor, Glory and Praise! Amen”
