Tag Archives: Shine your light

You will be misunderstood


And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:5 KJV)

You will be put in places and around people who don’t get you. That’s okay. They’re not supposed, initially. As light in darkness, people who live in darkness or who live beneath their purpose don’t really know what it’s like to live in and on purpose. They have to be taught. They have to be shown. You have to be the example. People need to see what an intentional and unapologetic life looks like. They need to see someone who is happy on their job, who is happy in their marriage, who lives God and walks in the light that was given by Jesus.

If you have been wondering why no one gets it, it is because your light is unfamiliar to those in darkness. Your light is so bright that they have to squint their eyes and marvel at the who you are. It’s been so dark for so long that they aren’t even sure what light is anymore.
Be that light.
Be the salt.
Brighten up someone’s life and add some seasoning to it. It’s your mandate. It’s everyone’s mandate. Remember that to whom much is given much is required. You are required to use your gifts and double them. Make good on them. Don’t bury them and don’t let others dim your light because they don’t have the confidence to let theirs shine.
They may not understand now but they will in due time. Just keep shining your light in the dark places of your job, your marriage, your children, your family, your community & anywhere else God places you.
Keep shining your light!
Until next time….
Choose to live in and on purpose!
