Point to the Light

Posted on: 7-15-112017

My one year old grandson is fascinated with pointing at any and everything these days! He usually points and says, “that” in reference to whatever he’s pointing at, but when he points at a light, he says, “light”. Of course we shower him with praise for saying the right word and he gives us a big smile. A few days ago, it seemed as if he was a broken record because he continually pointed out lights to us and told us “light, light, light.” About the fiftieth time he pointed to the light over the dining room table, it hit me that what this sweet boy was doing was symbolic of what God divinely created him to do – he is pointing people to an earthly light right now, but he has been created to point others to the one true Light! Right then I thanked God for my precious boy, and I prayed that he would always be a person who pointes out the Light to others. Now, every time he points to the light, I’m going to use it as a reminder to pray for him to continue to point others to Christ, as well as a reminder that I should be doing that as well!

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world.” John 8:12
