Let Your Light Shine
Hanging from the ceiling of a firehouse in Livermore, California is a light bulb. This light bulb has become very popular recently, and it has stirred up much attention. It even has its own web-site. From this web-site you can read all sorts of information about the light bulb, and you can actually watch it 24 hours a day. So why has this light bulb been given so much attention? It is because this particular light bulb has been functioning for over 106 years. I do not think I have to tell you, but that is a long time for a light bulb to be functioning. This makes me wonder how many people this particular light bulb has effected. How many people would have been lost in a dark room if it were not for this light bulb showing them the way? This makes me think of what Jesus once said when He told His disciples, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16). How many people have you effected in your life? How many people would be lost in a dark world if not for your light showing them the way to the Father? I will probably never live to be 106 years old. Most (if not all) of you will never live to see 106 years, but while you are here, let your light shine.
