Be a Light This Christmas Season

Matthew 5:14: You are the light of the world.

The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my favorite time of year. There’s nothing like the shining lights in dark places and the giving spirit displayed by many. I love the Christmas music as well as the foods we only make at this time of year.

This season, I want to concentrate a little less on the holiday lights and just be the light myself to those around me. For those who are hurting right now, I want them to have the same hope I too have found.

Some have lost loved ones and this is their first Christmas alone. There are also people who have lost jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. Many just feel empty and don’t know why.

What can I do, Lord, to support these people? I think the answer lies in seeking Him daily and contacting those who come to my mind. What I say isn't as important as just listening and letting them know I am thinking about them and praying for them during this tough season!

Let me encourage you this Christmas season to reach out and touch someone! It may light up their life!
