“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”
“Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 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. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 2: 14-16
|Some of us are like those glistening lights on the snow, some dim, some colorful, and some bright in contrast to the darkness of this world. The thought that captures me–God knows where and how bright each of His precious diamonds are shining, just like the stars in the evening sky. Each one has a name, each one is placed in just the right spot, to fulfill it’s purpose in His story. I was captured by this sight and this world cannot help but be captured by the reflection of God’s light and love in each of His children. You know what? When they are close and unified–they shine even brighter!|
As we come upon this season of celebration amongst the glow of twinkling lights, let’s remember that we too have a light of our very own to shine!
