Just a thought to help start your week.
Do you stand out in the crowd? The very thought of such a thing scares many of us to death. Others live for the moment when they are the center of attention at any gathering. Landmarks like the Statue of Liberty or the Washington Monument or the La Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower), as seen here, all stand out in their respective landscapes.
For example, the Eiffel Tower in Paris can be seen from many parts of the city during the daytime. Then at night, it is lit up, blinking on the hour, and can again be seen from all around. It is indeed something to experience.
In a very similar way, the Statue of Liberty is pointing proudly toward a land of freedom, and the Washington Monument stands proudly as a reminder of one great leader in particular.
As a Christian, we should stand out the crowd – in a good way, of course. The world is full of those who are looking for someone to act as a light or a guide in this world, leading them to something or SomeONE much greater than they.
So how’s that for a challenge this week?! BE the Eiffel Tower! BE the Statue of Liberty! BE the Washington Monument! Stand out as a Christian in your world, shining the Light and pointing others toward Him.
Just a thought.
