Sunday Scripture — Be the Light

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

As I sat outside in the quiet pre-dawn morning with Baxter, my attention went to the small solar lights spaced throughout our yard.

Against the darkness of early morning their glow was welcomed. The intensity of each light varied according to the amount of sunlight it received during the day, depending on where it sat in the yard. Even the dimmest light was comforting.

While I sat in the stillness, I pondered what God might have for me to learn from those lights, and here’s what I considered.

Those of us who have been called by God to be his light in a world of darkness don’t all shine with the same brightness, the same illumination, but we all shine nonetheless. Sometimes our absorption of God’s light may not be as pronounced as those around us because we each absorb God’s light in our own way. Even the dimmest light shines in the darkness.

How about we quit comparing ourselves to others, and shine as bright as we can wherever we are placed; understanding we’re all important and created to shine in our own special way.

How do you shine in your world?

No man lights a lamp and then hides it under a pail. He puts the light on a lamp-stand so those who come in can see it. The eye is the light of the body. When your eye is good, your whole body is full of light. When your eye is sinful, your whole body is full of darkness. Be careful that the light in you is not dark. Luke 11:33-35 (NLV)

I wish you well.
