The news is horrendous. People appear to be ready and willing to take the low road. Fear, distrust and anxiety are fueled by angry, hurt people who lash out at even angrier, hurt people. We can get caught up in the distasteful things of this world to the point that we just want to pull the blinds and hide.
Matthew 6:22-23 MSG
“Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!”
When we hide away we take the light of Jesus with us. Our light can’t impact the world if it’s hidden away in darkness. We are the carriers of God’s light. Our God colors change our environment for the better. God strategically placed us into position so that our light could make the most impact on a difficult world. Open your eyes wide in wonder and belief. Let your light shine. Be part of the difference our world needs. Let your light shine for all the world to see.
