I had been noticing for a while that one of the three shades in the light fixture in the guest bathroom looked different than the other two. As I am a little bit color blind I told Marta I must have accidentally picked up one that was the wrong color when we replaced those “Hollywood” lights that came with the house. She pointed out that two of the shades had regular bulbs in them and the one that looks different has a special light in it. That’s why it shines a little brighter and stands out from the others. I like that. It reminds me of Christ’s words to His disciples in Matthew 5:16 “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
We are all pretty much the same but it’s what we let shine through that can make a difference. Right now with everything that is going on in our state, in our country and in our world…it is a pretty good time for us to shine a little brighter.
