Mini-reflection on light

Today is a rather dark and gloomy day, with a high chance of rain, here in Houston. It’s the kind of day that is almost reminiscent of London. “Almost” because it’s a little hard to be reminded of London when it’s the end of January and the high is 78 degrees Fahrenheit (that’s about 26 Celsius for my non-American friends) and has my son was wearing shorts this morning (yes I do think I prefer Houston “winters”). Anyway. The absence of light, along with the little light on my desk breaking through reminded me of some things.

Jesus said “I am the light of the world.” (John 8:12)

Yet Jesus also said “You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14).

The link, I think, is found at the end of John 8:12: “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

So let your light shine before men.

Take this light of the world and shine it out to a world living in darkness that was never meant to be.
