I have always considered my classroom to be a bright place. That is, until just before vacation when we changed lights in the building. As I entered the building one morning, I was keenly aware of a difference in the lighting in the hallway. As I stepped inside my room, it seemed rather dim. Nothing had changed, except with what I was comparing it. Gradually, these lights had become dimmer, and I had slowly adapted.
In Matthew, Jesus says we are the light of the world. It is easy for me to see this light in others. Sometimes I meet someone who seems to be glowing and I find myself feeling dim in comparison. But it does challenge me to dig in God’s Word and find some new inspiration. I hope I can glow and inspire others also!
I hope you will find a new charge in God’s Word each day this year that will make you glow!
P.S. The lights in my room are changed now, too, so I have the bright lights also!
