Fun With Colors
“You are the light of the world. A City on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5: 14-16 (NIV Bible)
Remember as a child singing, “This Little Light of Mine?” Some of the words are; This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine; Hide it under a bushel? No! Let it shine; Don’t let Satan blow it out; All around my neighborhood I’m gonna let it shine; Let it shine till Jesus comes. In that simple song is a powerful message. Where is your light?
When I did this design, I kept humming “this little light of mine.” It prompted me to use a lot of colors - bright colors. This design is all about colors. The various shapes all reflect different color combinations. I like to sit back, put my feet up, relax and just look at this design and let my imagination go wild! In our everyday lives we tend to get so wrapped up in stuff we miss the important things. Look at the design and let your mind just wander around and enjoy the colors and the shapes. Then, as you go through each day, take time to pause and enjoy the wonders of God's creation, for it is written in Genesis 1:3, And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” All of the colors in this design are to the glory of the Lord and the light of His creation.
Are you letting your light shine in the marketplace? Are you seeking His kingdom first? Regi Campbell, in his book, About My Father’s Business, wrote, “It’s about being on purpose with every person that God points you to in your work life.” During the week in the marketplace the Lord will place people in your path. You must be vigilant and keep focused so that you can respond and introduce them to Jesus. As a Christian you have a powerful message to share. You have a great responsibility. You are to live like Jesus. And as he told us, we are to go out and make disciples. The best way to introduce people to Jesus is to act like Jesus. Treat others just like Jesus treated people. It really works!
