the light

“In him was life and that life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.  He came as a witness concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.  He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.  The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.” (John 1:4-9)


I am the light of the world, you don’t have to be.  You are not responsible (or able) to eliminate all of the darkness.  You are just responsible to bear witness to my light.  Just try to reflect me, in the same way the moon reflects the light of the sun.  Only as I shine on you, will you be able to shine on others.  Remember that.  Otherwise, it will be easy for you to get overwhelmed and exhausted.
