The light each of us has within us is not a candle, but a torch. The gifts and talents God has placed within us are full of powerful, world-changing light that can transform every person we meet. As we walk in partnership with Holy Spirit, living in love and truth, our light shines brighter and brighter and more people receive deposits of God’s Kingdom. His Kingdom is a Light Kingdom. There isn’t any darkness there.
It’s our choice to walk in the values and systems of the world of lusts on every level or to walk in the Kingdom of generosity and compassion. We can live to take, or live to give.
When we live to take, we shut ourselves in and seal the door shut to keep others from stealing from us and lose the opportunity to receive from Abba and enjoy a relationship with Him.
When we instead give, there is a constant flow of giving out and Abba pouring in. God is a Giver. He gives beyond what we deserve. His kindness and generosity draw us into a relationship with Him. He’s not kind to us to bribe us, but rather He is kind to us because He loves us beyond anything comparison.
Let your light shine. Give with an open heart and watch God move into your life in deeper dimensions and expand your relationships outward. Let’s allow His goodness to flow out and bless every person we meet.
Have a great weekend. Shabbat Shalom
