2014 has arrived with all the usual fanfare, a party in New York Times Square, fireworks, parties, parades, and of course football games. These elaborate demonstrations are over. Here is the question of the day. Have you already broken a new year resolution? Researchers report the first Monday after new year’s is the most depressing day of the year. People are back to work and depressed they had to go back to the job. Many have already given up on keeping the new year’s resolution to stay fit. Others are despondent because they didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas, or are sad due to the lost of a loved one. Whatever the reason the party is over, and now things back to “normal.” For many normal is not good.
However, we are called to shine a bright light for those who are experiencing dark days and moments. God sent a million, million lights of love in the world – that would be us. “God doesn’t call the qualified He qualifies the called.” We are “the called.” Share your bright light and the love of God today. Someone out there needs it.
