When I was the Children’s Minister I taught a lesson about shining our light to the children that was a lot of fun. I look the kids into a big room that had no windows and we turned out all the lights. After I got the kids all settled down I had my helper shine a light on me with the flashlight. And as I sat in the light that my helper was shining on me and talk about how we are all created with the image of God inside of us and that we all have the ability to shine that image to the people who we come in contact with during the day. Then I took out a mirror and reflected the light towards another one of my helpers and they also had a mirror and they reflected the light towards one of the children. It was a wonderful visual image of how we are all called to reflect the light that we have inside of us out into the world, to shine the light of Jesus that we all have towards the people that we meet.
The challenge is the same for adults as it is to children. We are created in the image of God and have the ability to reflect God’s image to the people we come in contact with every day. Will you reflect God’s image?
Read: Matthew 5:13-16
So, there are no questions to answer today, instead I would love for you to watch one more video.
Prayer: Creator God, help us to remember that we are created in your image, created by you. Remind us daily to shine your light into the world. May people know you though our actions. Amen.
