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.

Glass Full of Positive

We know the people around us that are happy, they attract us. They are often happy with life and are the “glass half-full” sort of people. They are encouraging without their even having to do anything more than smile or laugh. Their being can be infectious and quite “lifting”.

Reading the Word

Our purpose is to know, love and serve God in everything. So the purpose is to get to know God more intimately through reading HIS books. He inspired the writers to write what they did. The Holy Spirit helped the Gospel writers and St Paul with the New Testament. We might be reading these books for the Literary contents and style, or for the sacred work that they are. In each case there is something to gain from the study of the Word of God.

Language

Language has been both a unifying and a dividing point in many counties and societies. People identify profoundly with a language which comes from the nature of cultural identity united to language and at times faith.
