This is a new adventure for me.
If it is for you also, perhaps we can learn together.
Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. NIV
One summer, on switchback mountain roads, we rode in the back of a pickup on our way to Bible school. We, my sister and I and our mining camp friends, belted out “This little light of mine.” We may have been lacking in talent, but not in volume or enthusiasm.
“This little light of mine; I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine. Put it under a basket. No! I’m gonna let it shine.”
Many years later my husband and I attended a Christmas program at The Cove, near Asheville. Billy Graham, Cliff Barrows, and George Beverly Shea gave an impromptu performance of . . .You guessed it. This Little Light of Mine. Two out of the three had obvious talent. Billy Graham’s part was to shout “NO!” when the time came. These three dear men brought back a sweet memory.
Questions to think about:
Am I letting my light shine today?
Who has shone a light on your path?
