Hundreds of pebbles, maybe a thousand, but one caught my attention. The tiny rock had a shine that made it stand out among the rest. Assuming the stone was a crystal, I felt the urge to pick it up. However, upon closer inspection, I found nothing special; only a basic dull rock. The only reason the pebble had been shining was because of the sun’s shine.
I don’t know about you, but I want to shine for Jesus. Unfortunately, many days I try so hard I make myself crazy. Thankfully, a little dull pebble finally got through my little dull skull. To shine for Jesus, I need to be with Jesus and allow His light to shine through. The world doesn’t need a shiny Lisa Buffaloe, but it sure does need The Light of The World — Jesus.
Even though the moon is a big round dull rock in the sky, it reflects the light of the sun.
Which gives me great hope, I might be a basic, dull rock here on earth, but I can reflect the never-ending, amazing, wonderful SONshine! So I’m going to spend time with the Light of the World, and let Him shine through.
Let’s spend time with Jesus and let His light shine!
