We recently attended Kellianne Crouse's graduation from Asbury University. We were all excited to be there, and the gym quickly filled up and grew hot. I'd had a tough week and not slept well for days and when the speaker came up to the podium, I worried I might doze off.
The minute Samuel Rodriguez opened his mouth, I knew I wouldn't be falling asleep. He challenged the graduates and all of us to be light in a dark world.
Matthew 5:15 says, "People don’t hide a lamp under a bowl. They put it on a lamp stand. Then the light shines for everyone in the house."
Have you ever been in a dark house with no electricity? You know lighting one candle can fill a room with light. Pastor Rodriguez says when you have light and dark, light always wins. I was so moved by his talk, I Googled him. I also bought his book, Be Light. I hope to read it and share with you occasionally what I learn from this book. In the meantime, I hope we can all be light and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
I'm going to end with a few pictures of our favorite college graduate.
