BE THE LIGHT

Jn 9:5

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

KJV

The text above is taken from a discussion between the Lord Jesus and his disciples about a man born blind. The disciples asked Jesus whose sin it was that was responsible for the man's plight. They wanted to know if it was the man's fault or his parents. In their preoccupation with the source of the problem, they did not realize it could not have been the man's sin anyhow. If he was born that  way, when did he sin to cause the blindness? But the Master seem not to be interested in all of that.

The disciples saw the problem, the Lord Jesus saw the opportunity. He said about the blind man
'Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him' (John 9:3). And Jesus went on to heal the man.

When two people are faced with a challenge, they either make excuses for the problem or find a solution to it. For instance, we find people discuss and analyze the reasons for our national predicaments, but few would actually go on to do something about it. Is a brother in a mess? Seek to alleviate his plight. Is there a chore somebody should do that nobody did? If you could, why not go ahead? It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

Go into today shining the light in every dark. Lift a finger.  Be of help. Train your mind to see an opportunity to glorify God in other people's predicament.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to be like You more and more; bringing solution when men are perplexed.
