“Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.” Matthew 5:15Text — Matthew 5:14-16
A candle may not be able to lighten up a whole house but the area where it is placed. As a friend of Jesus, it is expected that you brighten the corner where you are and make a difference no matter how little. Christians are lights in the world. The world is in darkness with its evil deeds and all manner of sins and works of darkness.
However, as the candlestick cannot be placed under a table, bed nor under the cupboard when lit, so God wants us to lighten up and brighten our world. You can make a difference with the way you live, speak, relate, and interact. You are to be a channel of blessing in your neighborhood, school, church, and everywhere you go.
Reach out to the needy, share knowledge, food, experience with those who need them. Prayer also goes a long way in reaching those we might not be able to physically touch. Be the hand, eyes, legs of Jesus today.
Prayer for today
Lord, use my life to touch others.
