More power needed to shine

A man once rigged up an electric battery to ring his front doorbell. Then he thought he would run a wire to his bedroom and use the power from the battery for a light. After failing, he called in an electrician who smiled and said: ‘Don’t you know that it takes more power to shine than to make a noise?”

In the New Year our prayer for an ordered life of supreme happiness is to shine in the light and love of obedience to God’s faithful word. Obviously one does not require much effort to make noise, be that leaven of light to your friends, family or even a foe. It is only possible with Him (Phil. 4:13). What about you?

“Let your light so shine before men” (Matt. 5:16).
