Let Your Light Shine

You are the light of the world. A city 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 men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.   Matthew 5:14-16

Seems like every time I turn on the TV, the radio, or try to see what is up on Facebook, it is nothing but bad news. The political and economical climate in our country is such that hackles are raised on both sides of the aisle. Tensions are high. Times are frightening. It feels like our world is slowly being swallowed by the darkness.

Late the other night I opened up Facebook and it went something like this:

  • a status about gun control
  • an article about abortion
  • a status hating Obama
  • an article about gun control
  • a status about gun control

and then I saw this…

Come thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy praise…

Oh, Friends! Let us remember why we are here. We are called to be a light in the darkness. We are called to point people to the Light, not the darkness. Yes, things are bad and getting worse in our nation and around the world. But God is GOOD! Let people see and hear about the wonders of God rather than the mistakes of men.

And thank you, dear Friend, for letting your light shine at times when it seems like all I can see is darkness.
