Speaking to His followers, the Savior taught, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 15:14-16)
Each one of us carries within us the spark of divinity. We are each a child of God meant to shine. When our lives our filled with the joy that comes from following Jesus Christ, our actions become a light in the darkness.
Etched on the side of this lamp that lies hidden under a bushel basket are the seven continents reminding each of us that when we live as Christ taught we truly are the “light of the world.”
