Feb 9, 2020 - Let My Little Light Shine
Matthew 5:13-16

Church Family, 

Joe and Moe were carpenters. Joe was always finding ways to tease Moe, who was not too bright.

One night Joe shined his flashlight up to the 2nd story of a house and said, “Moe, would you mind climbing up this light beam and get my hammer for me?’

Moe said, “Ha! How dumb do think I am?’

“I’m sorry,” Joe replied.

“You’d better be,” said Moe. “I know you too well . . . you’d let me get halfway up and then turn the light off!’

Not the brightest lights these two. 

Consider our lesson for tomorrow. Jesus says to his followers, "You are the light of the world. . . ." Can you imagine that? Here was a motley crew of farmers and fishermen and tax collectors and housewives in a tiny and remote village in an obscure part of the world and Jesus was saying to them, "You are the light of the world." Talk about a statement of faith! 


Let's go farther than that. Talk about a crazy idea! Light of the world? That bunch? It must have sounded absurd at the time even to them. Only Jesus could have seen that through this motley crew God would indeed change the world forever. At the time, however, it probably sounded like so much idle chatter. "You are the light of the world," he said and so they were. Now do you want to hear something really absurd? So are we.
