"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14
What happens when you wake up in the middle of the night and walk in the dark? Likely you may stumble into a table or walk into a wall. Light is needed to dispel the darkness. Once a light is illuminated darkness can not stay.
Believers are the 'light of the world' and are supposed to shine the brightness of the Lord wherever they are. Starbucks, grocery, drug store, the gym, your living room, on the phone with telemarketers(ouch), in a doctor's waiting room, jail cell, and a myriad of places you might find yourself. You shining this 'light' through your speech, kindness, and love for others will show if you are sincere.
Try going out daily and making a point to imagine yourself a beacon or flashlight where God's love is lighting the path around you. Now go shine on!
PRAYER: I love each and every day you give me and help me not waste any chance to illuminate the darkness in this world. In Jesus' name. Amen.
