A few weeks ago, the night light broke. And our kids were in an anxiety-ridden-frenzy over the issue.
“How will we be able to see!?!?” they questioned harshly. Me? I didn’t realize the night light was that big of a deal.
Looking back, it makes sense. That small light delivered comfort and hope to the children in an otherwise dark living space. The night light belonged there and it was supposed to be shining every night. It was troublesome to have a night light that wasn’t fulfilling its purpose.
Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world. Your faith glows and it can be seen for miles:
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
If we live for Christ, we will glow like lights showing others what Christ is like.
Maybe your light has been broken and not repaired. Or maybe it has been shut off all together. That’s not the way it’s supposed to be!
Share your light with others, speak up for what is right, and tend to the needs of people around you. Then we will see a light burning for the Lord.
