Today I listened to a reflection on the scripture reading for the day. In the Gospel, Jesus explained that a light shouldn’t be hidden under a basket or bed in order for it to be effective. He went on to say that we – those who choose to follow Him – are like that light. We should share our faith with others and not keep it to ourselves. In the reflection, Jeff Cavins went further with the analogy saying that we have control over how bright we shine with our dimmer switch. We can hide or be down low or shine brightly. As my mom was getting ready for bed tonight, one of the bulbs in her light dimmed. It immediately reminded me of the Gospel and made me smile. I think that image will come to mind often now.
I Found God today in good way to remember to allow my light to shine.
