This past Halloween, chances are trick-or-treaters canvassed your neighborhood that evening.
It’s understood that if somebody’s porch light is off, don’t go to that house. Keep it moving.
But if my porch light is on, that’s my way of inviting you to ring my doorbell to ask for candy. That’s my way of telling you that I want to be a blessing to you.
In order for me to be a blessing, I must turn my light on.
Even on a general level, in order to be a blessing to other people, turn your light on.
In Matthew 5:16, Jesus puts it like this: “Let your light shine before people, so that they might see your good works and so that they might glorify your heavenly Parent.”
