With the lengthening spring days, the sun is higher in the sky in the morning…and right in my eyes on part of my morning walk.
As I travel the road, I weave in and out of shadows and light, sometimes blinded as I turn a corner or walk between the outline of houses. The other day, as I came around one corner, a school bus was headed down the road toward me. Except for the small headlights on the front of the bus, I could not see the bus at all, only the glare of sun streaming around.
You know, that’s how I want to live my Christian life.
I want people who meet me to be so dazzled by the brilliance of Christ that they can see nothing else.
A big part of how people see me, of course, is based on my attitude. Am I looking for opportunities to be that light for Christ, or am I, quite literally, hiding my light under a bushel?
I have a quote on my bathroom mirror that is based on a sermon I heard a few weeks ago:
Expect Divine Appointments Every Day
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” – Matthew 5:14-15
