“If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine!”Matthew 5:16 MSG
Your opportunity to shine the light of Jesus’ love into people’s lives often happens when you least expect it to.
It happens when your plans change and you have an opportunity to respond grace-full-y.
It happens when there has been a miscommunication you have an opportunity to lead with an apology.
It happens when someone lashes out and hurts you and instead of lashing out back, you bring them a bandaid of mercy.
Moments like these are when Jesus shines through you.
So shine bright, my friend, this dark world needs you.
