Let your light so shine

This is a photo of my daughter lighting her sparkler from a candle my wife is holding.

"If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark,
the whole shall be full of light,
as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light."
Luke 11: 36

It was fun experimenting with taking pictures last week of my daughter's "at home" fireworks display. The photos have been great to use on this blog to illustrate some profound scriptures. The above verses in the New Testament is taken from the same chapter in Luke that Jesus teachs the disciples how to pray to the Father. The verse begins with IF... If thy whole body therefore be full of light... having no part dark. Wow.. is this possible? We live in such a corrupt, dark world, it seems almost impossible to not be effected by the darkeness that surrounds us. However.. where there is light, no darkness can be present. The goal for us is to have our WHOLE body full of light.... so we can dispel the evil and the darkness from around us. If we emulate light... I can't help but think others around us will feel/sense/see .. and ignite a spark of light within them as well.. just like the lighting of this sparkler from the candle.
