The Face – And The Mirror

The Face – And The Mirror…

Jesus called us to be the light of the world. But God is, by nature, the light of the world – not us. So how do you become a light? By reflecting His light. How? How does a mirror reflect the sun?

By turning its face away from everything else, away from the earth, and into the direction of the sun. What you look at, what you dwell on, what you spend your time and thoughts focusing on, that is what you’ll end up reflecting.

What you reflect, you become. So consider what you’re dwelling on. If you dwell on what is not good, you won’t end up good either. If you dwell on your problems, you’ll become a problem. If you dwell all the time on your troubles, you’ll become troubled and trouble.

Just because there are troubles in your life – you don’t have to let it trouble you or determine who you are. Learn from the mirror. Turn your heart and mind away from the troubles, away from the details of this world, and to the light of the Son – and you will become… the light of the world.

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. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

No matter what situation you find yourself in today, let His light illuminate the darkness around you. Shine bright!

Walk daily with God at your side!
