His Light and Our Lives …

Photo-Light-Earthquake“You are the light of the world… No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house.  In the same way your light must shine in the sight of men, so that, seeing your good works, they may give the praise to your Father in Heaven.”     Matt 5:14-16 (JB)

Each of us is called to be that light in our own way. Some of our light will shine brighter and longer. But there are times when our light may be dimmer and weaker, but it still continues to flicker.

In a world where the emphasis is on pursuing instant gratification, the best of wealth and health, and that elusive eternal youth – we are often deluded into thinking we can live forever. That there will always be a tomorrow. Hence, we often forget that our little flicker of light can be accidentally and inexplicably snuffed out.

Last Friday morning (5 June) rocks cascaded down Mount Kinabalu as a rare 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck Sabah in Malaysia. Six young pupils and a teacher from a primary school as well as an adventure guide, all from our country, who went there on a field trip were killed in the avalanche of rocks. One teacher and a pupil are still missing.

Our heart goes out to all the victims and our prayers are with their families.      By R

  1. I opened my book, “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young, and today’s message talked about “wear My love like a cloak of light… walk in the light… the light of My Presence…” and then I opened my email and read your blog! This is no coincidence! He truly is the Light of the world!

    1. Peace Joyce! I had wanted to post this photo last week, but when the tragedy occurred, i didn’t feel like posting anything. Then this morning, while i was praying, i read in today’s daily missal’s reading the exact same verse that i already had in mind! So i told Him “ok, ok, i get the hint, i will post it today!” 😉 Renee.
