Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Little Light of Mine
Is 58:7-10 / Ps 112:4-5; 6-7, 8-9 / 1 Cor 2:1-5 / Mt 5:13-16
Have you ever driven at night and realized you were driving without your head lights on? Or perhaps you notice someone else driving without their lights on. You might think to yourself, “I sure hope that driver turns their lights on so other drivers can see them.” Or when you realize your lights are off, “oh my, I can’t believe I’ve been driving all this time with my lights off!” Either way, fellow travelers need the light of the other for the sake of the other. Its similar in the Stewardship way of life! We all have lights, some choose to leave them off, some don’t know how to turn the light on, and others might be shining so bright they bring darkness to its knees. We need your light! Let it shine. You know why, as Jesus said in today’s Gospel, “your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” Let it shine!
