    “Some years ago, on returning from a business trip, a man brought his wife some souvenirs.  Among them was a matchbox that would glow in the dark.  After giving it to her, he turned out the light, but the object was not visible.  “This must be a joke!” she said.  Disappointed, the husband commented, “I’ve been cheated!”  Then his wife noticed some French words on the box.  Taking it to a friend who knew the language, she was told that the directions read:  “If you want me to shine at night, keep me in the sunlight all day.”  So she put her gift in a south window.  That evening when she turned out the light, the matchbox had a brilliant glow.  The surprised husband asked, “What did you do?”  “Oh, I found the secret,” she said.  “Before it can shine in the dark, it must be exposed to the light.”

    Just as the matchbox, having been exposed to the sun, took on the nature of the sun and began to shine, so Christians should constantly expose themselves to the Son, that they may take on his nature and shine as lights in a dark world.” Michael P. Greene

Quote of the day:  D. L. Moody

“Character is what you are in the dark.”

Bible verse of the day:  Luke 11:35-36

“Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.  If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As dark as it may be out there, You have made me a light that will shine brighter even in the darkest of times.  Father You have asked us to stand apart from the ways of this world, and to shine Your Son’s light so brightly, so that those around us won’t even know it’s dark out!  God, I pray that my light radiates through me and unto others and as It shines through me, I ask that You remove from my heart anything that may be hindering Your Light.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
