light vs. Light

Children who grow up in the Church are taught  that God lives inside of us, and that he should not be hidden from the world. His light should shine out of you by the way you act and talk–which is referenced by the song “This Little Light Of Mine”. You won’t hear me say this often, but I think the Church does a good job at explaining this to children. It is something that I need to be frequently reminded of.

A few months ago, I came across a video that both blew my mind and reminded me of this idea that God’s light shines out of His followers. 11:50 to the end of this video is what I will be discussing from here on out, but I encourage you to watch the whole video because it is really interesting.

While the light from the song “This Little Light Of Mine” is metaphorical, our bodies produce physical light as well. We are literally shining! WHAT?! How cool is that?

After watching this video, I couldn’t help but think of the Light that I have inside of me. It made me wonder if I do a good job at making that Light known to others around me. Unlike our physical light, our spiritual Light only shines through us when we allow it to.

Many times, my Light is dimmer than my light.

I often don’t live in a way that emits the Light that I have. I care more about showing people my physical, worldly light. I let my light become so bright that it reduces the brightness of the Light.

Are you living in such a way that causes YOUR light to shine brighter than THE Light?
