A light that doesn't shine has lost its usefulness. Jesus said that no one hides a light under a basket but puts it on a lampstand to illuminate everything around it. Our light (our actions) should point people to the One who is the Light. We don't have any light in our selves, but we shine with the reflection of Christ. God has placed each of us in a specific environment that will best allow us to shine with His light. Don't be like a burned out streetlight. Shine On!
