When Benjamin Franklin decided to interest the people of Philadelphia in street lighting, he hung a beautiful lantern on the end of a long bracket attached to the front of his house. He kept the glass brightly polished and carefully lit the wick each evening at the approach of dusk. Anyone walking on the dark street could see this light a long way off and came under its warm glow. What was the result? It wasn’t long before Franklin’s neighbors began placing lamps outside their homes, soon the entire city realized the value of street lighting and followed his example with enthusiasm. If we live according to the clear light of God’s Word, God will dispel the darkness and others will be attracted to the Light.
“In everything you do, stay away from complaining and arguing, so that no one can speak a word of blame against you. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of crooked an perverse people. Let your lives shine brightly before them.” Philippians 2:14-15 (NLT)
