Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous. Ps. 112:4
Perhaps people who put others first, who care, and who do the right things with the right motives seem to be nearest the light because the light is coming out of them. We can’t self-consciously will the light of Christ to shine from us; He shines from us when we are busy being worshippers and servants and friends.
Lord, shine for me until You shine through me.
