"Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle,
and put it under a bushel,
but on a candlestick;
and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16
 
"Lights" in the World
 
Christians sometimes fail more often than they succeed
in being lights in this world
because they are still sinful human beings.
They often display a remarkable talent
for wasting time, for squandering their talents,
and for overlooking opportunities to serve.
 
I have to believe that it must take a great deal
of patience on God's part to use such
weak and frail vessels.
It seems to be such a contradiction that the
perfect God should choose to use
such imperfect people as His children ~
His "LIGHTS."
 
No matter how often we fail to shine
or how frequently we displease our Lord
with our words and deeds,
the assignment itself does not change:
Believers are lights in this world!
 
God did not choose us because of our ability
or strength, but only out of love.
He prefers to kindle the light in our hearts and lives.
 
God is fully aware of our weakness and frailty,
our need for strength and encouragement.
To that end,
He has provided the Word of life.
Within is the message of forgiveness when we fail,
the dynamic inspiration to try again,
and the standard by which to determine
our conduct and direction.
 
The times we do shine as lights will be achieved
by His grace and will serve as an
expression of thanks.
May the good Lord be a lamp unto your feet
and a light unto your path.
