“The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.”—Proverbs 13:9
I’ve noticed that since the election of our new President, many on the political left have become discouraged. They feel that societal gains will be lost: the poor will become poorer while the rich become richer. While I can’t guarantee the outcome of all the political battles to come over the next four years, I do know that no one can extinguish my light. The talk, debates, social media flurries, marches, and protests all have their place. Along with these, let’s set forth some concrete actions.
Think of three things you can do to improve your community or state. What talents do you possess that can help others? Not sure what talents you have? Well, you have your time. Volunteer at a neighborhood school. Volunteer at a local homeless shelter. Donate to a local charity. But don’t just give money and walk away. Get involved brothers and sisters. I’m pleading with you all—let your light shine. Write down your three action items and get to work. Want to start your own programs? Me too! But until we get our programs running on 10, let’s make some waves, right now, in the sea of despair trying to flood our nation. Let your light shine!
