“I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth,” (Isa 49:6 ).
Daily Lent Reflection
God is fond of light. Creation includes separation of light from darkness, and our own lives are marked by the same strife. However, we often do not feel very ‘enlightening’ to those closest to us, never mind the nations! In those moments, it is good to remember this promise: “I will make you the light…’ God will do it…if we let God fan into flame that spark of divine life in us. Amazing things happen when we do: we become bearers of God’s healing, well beyond the boundaries of our tiny lives.
Daily Lent Challenge
Today I ask myself how I can allow God to work in me – and through me – even more? What is my particular mission to others?
