This Little Light of Mine

Young Woman with a Water Pitcher
What title would you give your "job" in God's kingdom? How did you find your line of work? (Serendipity Bible 10th anniversary edition, page 497).

Last Sunday morning in church Stacy sang a rousing rendition of "This Little Light of Mine." When I consider the question for today, I think of this song and how so many people really fundamentally share the same job in God's kingdom. We are to refract the light of God however imperfectly through human vessels. We are to hone our talents and to use them to the best of our ability. I would note that this approach takes us out of the business of judging others. We have not been placed here to hold court and dispose of others. We are here primarily to do our best and to concentrate on what contribution we can make. This I I think approaches the gist of what it means to be the salt of the earth and a light not hid under a bushel.
