John 12:46 “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.
Growing up as a child, my grandmother would always say to me “Baby, don’t roll stone, for stone” and as a child you just tend to listen, do what you’re told and not ask any questions. It was later in my adult years that I really understood what she was saying to me. I’ve been placed in situations where I clearly wanted to lose my hat but I heard a familiar voice saying “Baby, don’t roll stone for stone”.
Have you ever been in situations where you were being persecuted? It may have been a meeting at work, a disagreement with friends, or an argument with a spouse and you are trying to keep God first but the other party seems to be full of the devil. As Christians your character will always be judged by your displayed behavior. This means that whether someone cut you off in traffic, you should still say “God bless you” without any sign language. If the school calls because your kids are acting a fool, pray over them first and if you and your spouse are in a disagreement get the holy oil and anoint their foreheads.
The saying means, no matter what it looks like, or feels like; you must take the high road and allow God to work a miracle over the situation with people, places and things. It is our Christian mission to lead the way for someone else. You never know who you are leading with your actions. So as you’re reading this today, be mindful of your Christian footsteps because people are watching and following. We are all shining lights just make sure that your light is illuminating the love of Jesus Christ.
