The Thought for the Day is from Mary Bell.
The Almond Tree Coffee Shop had a big sale on for several weeks before we closed. Our Christmas sales assistant showed us a dull looking cylindrical object that none of us was interested in buying ... until she switched on the lights inside it!
What a transformation! It had a leaf design on it that you couldn’t see before and with the light shining through, the green was a lovely hue. Well, all three of us wanted to buy it - especially at the bargain price! I made the comment - ‘Wouldn’t we be more likeable if we were lit up?’
Then the conversation went on to the fact that we do have the Light of the world within us. Is the light shining through us? It is so attractive.
One way to let the light shine is to rejoice in Christ. Thanking Him for His love for us and His goodness to us. Don’t let anything steal your joy in Him - no problem, worry or annoyance. Let us radiate the real joy of Christmas to others around. Many are fearful, sad, stressed and anxious because of the restrictions just now and the threat of illness and death.
Let us smile and be glad! We have a Saviour who walks with us!
