May you channel love to the world…as only you uniquely can.

Matthew 5:15-16

“Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”

Each of us is a reflection of our Creator.

Scripture tells us that humankind is made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27).

It also tells us that “God is light” (1 John 1:5) and “God is love” (1 John 4:8).

So when we are reflecting Love through our unique human form…we are shining a light.

Jesus said that each of us has a light.

This light…or reflection of God…is meant to be shared in the darkness of the world.

We do this by channeling God’s unconditional love which helps build the kingdom of God…or realm of Godhere and now.

Allow God’s light to shine in you.

What are your gifts and talents?

What do you enjoy doing?

Live these questions and see what answers develop.

Pay attention to your ego’s desires for power, prestige and possessions…things that can never truly satisfy.

Observe this…and allow those desires to dissipate.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).

That means now…and forever.
