Where Does Your Light Come From?

Dear Hubby was sitting on the love seat reading the paper. I was at the computer reading email. The computer desk and the love seat are very close neighbors. In fact, they share the same wall and the same light sources. Dear Hubby's aging eyes did not like the light in the room. He squinted at the paper and said, "We need better light in here. What happened to that lamp that use to be in here?" My aging mind does not recall the former lamp but I do recall the other light switch that is still on the wall.... So I walked over and turned on the switch which turned on the recessed light directly over his head. He said, "Oh, I knew that one was there but...."



But what? If you need more light, go to the source of the light and turn on the switch and let the light flow.



Why do we sit around wondering what is going on in our lives, in our homes, at work, in our churches, in our government, all the time sitting in partial darkness, when we have the source of light available to us? Our Loving Lord has set a lamp in our home to add light to our lives. It's His Word. It's called The Bible. Even those that do not own a Bible but are able to read this story on the Internet or in your email, can access several translations of the Bible at www.biblegateway.com. Some people choose to use a lesser light source or an alternative light source that leaves them at least partially in the dark. Our Loving Lord wants us to have the best light possible and has graciously provided it to us.



Little Lesson Life Expression:

What will you do today? Will you sit in the dark wishing for more light? Or will you pick up the Word of our Loving Lord today and find His light inside? Where will you find your light today? Where will your light come from?




Job 25:3 (Contemporary English Version)
Who can count his army of stars?
Isn't God the source of light?


Job 28:11 (New International Version)
He searches the sources of the rivers
and brings hidden things to light.


2 Samuel 22:29 (New International Version)
You are my lamp, O LORD;

the LORD turns my darkness into light.
