This Little Light of Mine, I’m Gonna Let it Shine~

October 6, 2016 — Leave a comment

               Some days are just hectic days!  The grocery store where I shop is always like a zoo if you don’t get there really early, which I usually don’t.  And a trip to the mall to go with it…I’m exhausted!

The highlight of one particular day was meeting a young man who was a sales associate where my son was shopping.  His name is Evan, and you could just tell there was something different about him.  He was kind and attentive, not in a schmoozy “let me sell you something” way, but sincere and honest.

               Do you remember this verse found in Luke 6:31 that we call The Golden Rule?  It says, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”  I could see that put into practice today by this young man.

Matthew 5:16 says, “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Evan’s light shines.

I know that it’s tough living for Christ in a hostile world.  I’ve seen the persecution that often accompanies taking a stand, but I thank God for people who do…especially those who are just coming into adulthood.

They are standing at the jumping off point, and their actions early on will influence the rest of their lives.

               When you meet someone and recognize that light, thank God for it.  It’s a gift!  And, let them know that you saw their light.  Thanks, Evan!  Gwen~
