Lake of Stars

Love this post.1

When David Livingstone travelled through southern Africa in the 1880s he came upon a large lake which he called the Lake of Stars. He name it this because when seen at night the lake is covered in lights from the fishing boats with fishermen working at night. The light on the boat attracting the fish, but makes the lake appear to be covered in the light of stars overhead. That lake today is called Lake Nyasa in Tanzania and Mozambique, and Lake Malawi in Malawi.

 

But whatever the name, the light is seen. It cannot be hid. The light is in the open for all to see who are on the shore or in other boats.

 

We need to be like those lights. As Jesus said a light on a hill cannot be hid. So to a light on Lake Malawi. And therefore like our light as Christian witnesses. We need to be always shining for all the world to see. Even if you are at work, at home, shopping, or among friends at a gathering. Let your light shine.

Change that is growth is wonderful to watch. We see children getting older and achieving in school; we see gardens grow. If the garden is for vegetables we can eat the resulting harvest. If we have flowers and shrubs we see the seasonal progress and natural beauty and design.
