This Little Light Of Mine

March 10, 2020


DAILY PROVERBS:

Proverbs 6:23-24 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.


OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

     When I was younger, it was COOL for people to have oil lamps in their house just for decoration. They didn’t cost much, and they looked somewhat neat sitting on the shelf. So I bought one. Filled it with that red colored oil, and set it aside.

     One day, I got the bright idea to light it, and watch TV by lamplight. I knew nothing about oil lamps, as you will be able to tell. I thought if you wanted a little light, you have a little wick showing. If you want a lot of light, you just turn up the wick. This seemed to make sense to me. My theory even seemed to work when I first set fire to the wick. I turned the wick up, placed the glass globe over it, placed it back on the shelf, and away she burned. I sat down to watch TV and didn’t notice, this burning wick began to turn the glass globe black, along with the ceiling above it.

     When I turned off the TV, it was dark in the room. The only light coming out of the lamp, was a glow from the opening in the top of the lamp pointing toward the ceiling. The ceiling by now was black, and reflecting little light. I couldn’t see a thing from the sides through the glass globe. There was still a flame in there, but no light was getting out. I had not used it correctly.

     So it is with many people today. They have the Word of God in their house, but it sheds no light. The light comes when you apply the Word of God from your heart. To know in your head what God’s Word says, but then not do as it says, is like the flame in my old oil lamp. The flame, and light were in the lamp, however it couldn’t do anyone any good. The only way for God’s word to do anyone any good is to read it, believe it, understand it, and then live by it. Then it will direct your paths.


THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

     “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.” Do you remember that little Sunday School song? For God’s Word to shine out, it has to get in first. Let’s hide God’s Word in our heart, so we can shine for Him.
