Lectio Divina: Light for the World

Posted by

You are light for the world. A city built on a hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in people’s sight, so that, seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven.

(Matthew 5:14-16, NJB)

Forget your light, it is not for you.

A light forgotten is a light received and given.

Do what you do in ways simple and clear.

When that light shines for others it is glory.

Glory is light divine glowing in all creation.
