This Little Light of Mine

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 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. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Matthew 5:14-15

Light. You never really appreciate it until you are in the dark. We take light for granted. I remember one night having to hike deep in a forest on a mountain side. I had to get to a destination by morning and all I had was a dim flashlight. All night long I appreciated every ray that emanated from the head of that lifesaving light. The next day on the way back I saw that I had walked for miles along the top of a deep ravine. Without the light I am sure I would have perished.
As Christians, we are the light for the world. We are the illumination on the path that leads through the wilderness along the dangerous ravine. Jesus reminds us that we must not hide the light but instead should put it where everyone can see by it brightness. He concludes with this command, “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Today you have a choice. You can contribute to the darkness of those around you or you can be the light. There is no neutral ground. When God give us opportunity today, might we shine with the Love of Christ that God will get the praise and glory.

Father, I pray that today you would shine your light
through me as you guide me to the darkness that you want me to shine upon. Help me see the needs around me and respond with your love and compassion so others will praise you.
