“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14)
I recently read a brief but very provocative commentary on this popular verse written by Bill Dodds, Editor and Writer at Our Sunday Visitor’s “My Daily Word”. He reminded me that others (family, friends, coworkers, etc.) are always watching. He also pointed out something I already knew, yet needed reminding of, that more often than naught, others will remember my actions over my words. His commentary then went on to say, “A light is silent. A light is powerful, warm, and inviting, especially in a dark, dark world.”
Mr. Dodd’s commentary ended there. I find it possibly bears repeating to sink completely in… A light is SILENT, POWERFUL, WARM, and INVITING. My thoughts? Light illuminates the path to Jesus. Light, His Light, is the only evangelization tool needed.
