Paul (Philippians 2)

“Shine like lights in the world as you hold on to the word of life.” 

What a wonderful image for those who belong to the Lord—one hand lifting the light, the other clinging fiercely to God’s life-giving words.

Lord God, you have seen fit to use the simple stuff of earth to reflect your goodness and your love. Show us how to hold such a precious gift in such an earthen vessel.
