Matthew 5:15,16 People don’t hide a lamp under a bowl. They put it on a lampstand. Then the light shines for everyone in the house. In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.

You are the Light of the World

It’s a simple fact that the busier we become, the less thoughtful we become; the less we think about how we can touch someone else’s life, the less we shine the light of God’s love into the darkness of this world. Sad, but true.

When was the last time someone actually did something good for you? Something special … something they did just because they knew it would delight you, help you, touch you in a special way.

Maybe that’s happened to you recently or maybe it’s been a while. But we both know that when somebody does that … man, don’t they just stand out from the crowd?

It may only be the smallest thing – a kind look, a word of encouragement, cooking a meal for you when you’re sick – but the recognition, the gratitude in your heart, can last a lifetime

And when we do something good – something kind, something generous, something encouraging for someone else – it makes us stand out from the crowd in a way that words can’t describe. Jesus put it like this:

Matthew 5:15,16 People don’t hide a lamp under a bowl. They put it on a lampstand. Then the light shines for everyone in the house. In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.

Those simple acts of kindness, those sacrificial acts of service … when you go out of your way to do just the smallest thing that speaks love into someone’s life … they’re like a light to them, in what is all too often a dark and lonely word.

For whom would your smile, your encouraging word, your small gift of time, make a lifetime of difference today? You … yes, you … according to Jesus, are the light of the world. Be that light.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Waking up to these words of encouragement this Thursday morning reaffirmed my faith in Jesus.
