Shining Lights

Have you started to take down your Christmas decorations? Sadly, I have. But living in cold New England, the outside lights will remain for quite some time. I love this excuse to leave them up longer. I love seeing the shining lights on these long cold dark nights.

The lights remind me of the true light in the darkness that I never have to worry about being without.

Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

We have much to do as we serve our Savior — “Light of the World” — in this brand-new year! He has plans for us. There are district conventions, mission grants to fund, prayer services, Bible studies to plan, and, and …

Seeing His light, let it remind us,

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
