Tonight I had to quick to capture the colours of the sky in a very short moment. Just a few minutes brought some wondrous displays.
How much more must we be ready to serve, (waists girded) and be shining as lamps of Christ (lamps), giving thanks for the light in this world, not the darkness.
35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36 and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. 38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
Dear Lord, thank you for your light, your Son Jesus Christ, allow us to shine forth as lamps for all to see.
