Today's daily inspirational thought coming into my inbox this morning by Anne Graham Lotz:
PUTTING HOLES IN THE DARKNESS
"Let your light so shine before me,
that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
~ Matthew 5:15 NKJV
"One night when Robert Louis Stevenson was a small boy, his nanny called him to come to bed. Oblivious to her summons, he was staring at something outside his nursery window. The nanny walked over, stood at his shoulder, and inquired patiently, 'Robert, what are you looking at?' The little boy, without taking his eyes away from the window, exclaimed in wonder as he pointed to the lamplighter who was lighting the streetlamps, 'Look, Nanny! That man is putting holes in the darkness!'
"You and I may not be able to change the world, but surely each of us can put a hole in the darkness! Turn on the Light! Share what Jesus means to you and give God's Work to someone else!
"All through the ages, men and women have done just that! They have turned on the Light so that a living faith in God has been passed from generation to generation. Not everyone has been attracted to the Light, but one by one people have come to Him for truth, wisdom, hope, salvation, and eternal life."
