When lighthouses let their lights shine, they guide ships and protect them from danger.
Like a lighthouse, you need to let your light shine.
You let your light shine when you:
- Show people the way to go.
- Warn them of danger.
Let your light shine in your own special way.
Every lighthouse is different. No other lighthouse looks exactly like Cape Cod’s Nauset Beach Light. Ships use that difference to know where they are and where they need to go.
Likewise, no one is exactly like you. Therefore, you have your own special gifts to offer. Share them as only you can. Give the gift of yourself.
Let your light shine every day.
If you see people in need, don’t be tightfisted. Help them.
- Give food to the hungry.
- Help the sick receive care.
- Teach people the truth.
- Guide people who are in the dark.
As a popular children’s song reminds us, let your little light shine.
“Let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16 NIV).
