"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."
"Love is a weapon of light, and it has the power to eradicate all forms of darkness."
"Light shines in the darkness..."
"You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world."
(Matt 5:14 the Message)
I've been on a couple of cave tours. One essential piece of equipment is a headlamp. The guide had us stand still, and then we all turned out our lights. My eyes strained, searching for some pinpoint of light, however small. None appeared. Nothing was visible. What relief when we turned our lights on again. One small light illumines a great area.
How can you, how can I bring a speck of light into our dark world? A smile for someone who has none, a hug for someone in sorrow, a prayer for comfort, a bill dropped into the Salvation Army bucket, patience with a child, sharing what we have.
As the days move towards the celebration of the coming of the Light of the World, I want to not only receive light, but be light.
