Read Proverbs Chapter 21.
. “A wicked person puts on a bold face, but the upright one considers his way.” Proverbs 21: 29
The original Hebrew for considers in this verse means “to make firm, to establish, to prepare.” I can’t help but think of the movie Field of Dreams. The infamous line from this particular movie is: “If you build it, they will come.” It was referring to a baseball field that would eventually be filled with the greatest players to have ever played the game.
Wouldn’t you like to be one of the greatest players to ever play the game?
You can be, simply by considering your ways.
‘In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 NIV) People are drawn to the light. In a world of darkness, the light within you is powerful. If you let it shine, people will be drawn to you. They won’t even know why.
The term for bugs that are drawn to the light is photoaxis. It is theorized that the reason bugs do this, such as moths, is because it messes with their internal navigation system. Your light can have the same effect on others. It can mess with their internal navigation system.
God’s ways mess with our internal navigation system.
Forgiving instead of exacting revenging. Telling the truth instead of lying. Helping instead of hurting. All of these are rays of light we cast into the world when we consider our ways. When we choose to follow God’s directions instead of our own, we let our light shine brightly. When we do, we become a source for photoaxis to take place. We draw people to us instead of repel them away. Like a moth to a flame, they will come. Instead of finding death, they will find life.
Let your light shine! Become one of the greatest players to ever play the game
