Let Your Light Shine
  by Garrett Bookout

Hanging from the ceiling of a firehouse in Livermore,
California, is a light bulb. This light bulb has become
popular recently, and it has stirred up much attention.

It even has its own website.

From this website you can read all sorts of information
about the light bulb. You can watch it 24 hours a day.

So why has this light bulb been given so much
attention?

It is because this particular light bulb has been
functioning for over 106 years.

I do not think I have to tell you, but that is a long
time for a light bulb to be functioning.

This makes me wonder how many people this particular
light bulb has affected. How many people would have
been lost in a dark room if it were not for this light
bulb showing them the way?

This makes me think of what Jesus once said when he
told his disciples, "Let your light so shine before
men, that they may see your good works and glorify your
Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).

How many people have you affected in your life? How
many people would be lost in a dark world if not for
your light showing them the way to the Father?

I will probably never live to be 106 years old. Most of
us will never live to see 106 years, but while you are
here, let your light shine.
