Every single day when we wake up we have a choice to go out into the world and be a beacon of light, a beacon of love, a source of God’s Grace.
Or choose not to.
But once you realize that you have this choice, this infinite power, why would you squander it to live another day in the darkness?
“And the light shine forth into the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
We are absolutely surrounded by beauty and miracles every single day, by a universe that wants us to express love and kindness to everyone we meet, even those who are in darkness and do not comprehend the light that we shine upon them.
Even if your actions are small and hardly noticed they serve to illuminate, from smiling at the clerk at the grocery store, to reaching out to a friend, or doing something kind for a child.
You can be a conduit, a messenger, a beacon of light, right now, today.
