Luminosity, Beam, Radiance

   Have you ever noticed how powerful light is? It scares away the darkness every time. No matter how hard it tries, darkness can never put out light. In fact, the deeper the darkness, the brighter the light shines.

   Light is attractive. Darkness is described as oppressive, creepy, and depressing, but light is comforting and happy. It lights up the places you want to be. People are drawn to light.

   Lighthouses show where home is; they keep people safe. When you get home late at night and the lights are still on, you know someone’s waiting up for you. People look for light when they’re lost. Light means safety, fellowship, home.

   Light wakes you up in the morning. It brings you to life, dancing through the shadows and signaling the new beginning of every day. It eliminates the night, when secrets are made, crimes are committed, and evil thinks it can hide.

   Light is powerful, attractive, comforting, and enlivening. It illuminates the truth. It eliminates the darkness.

   Be the light.

Matthew 5:14-16
