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.

The Silver Lining

Where and what is the silver lining? How do we get there and what possibly could it be? Many will wonder if there is any point after all because of what has been encountered in life up to this point. But wait…

The (New) Opiate of the People

We need moderation. This is key. Great saints did all in moderation. What was said or done was always in relation to God and the Kingdom. What we have today is not an opiate of a substance, but one of a digital world that feeds us freely and has found a way to enslave us as drugs can and do.
