Have you ever been afraid of the dark? Maybe as a child, you used a nightlight for comfort. Some people do so as adults. The best way to get rid of darkness is with light.
Matthew 5:16 tells us that in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. We live in a world of darkness. There are people out there who feel unloved and unwanted. Those who believe they are not worth anything in this world. Yet, God loves all His children. And those who believe in Him should be the light to lost people.
But how do you shine your light when your own world is toppling over? Here are three ways you can show your light to others:
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Too many of us have a tendency to live in darkness, whether we believe in Jesus or not. We complain about our jobs instead of getting out and finding a new one. We don’t like being in debt, yet continually use our credit cards.
The only way to stop feeling miserable is to make changes. Instead of allowing the darkness of the world to control us, we need to use God’s light to chase away any strife. Hold tight to the Lord, and He’ll brighten your world.
