The light exists to dispel darkness. The light is meant to be shared. Therefore, the powerful parable of the lamp reminds us that we belong to the Light, and that we belong together.
It is too easy to become a lone ranger. God made us to go together and to live in the Light of Jesus.
Dear God, help me to be a lamp that bears the Light of Christ with grace and dignity. May I have the strength to share my entire self today.
