“Shine Your Light”

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16.

This month’s student character focus is “Shining Light”. We are asking our students to reflect on how brightly their light shines in their classrooms and in our school. If I may be so bold, I want to pose the same questions to you: HOW brightly does your light shine in your family, in your workplace, and with your friends? WHY is it so important that it does?

Think through this with me for a moment - What does a light do? It shows the way. It brings things out that were once hidden. It diminishes fear of the unknown. If we are to shine our light for these purposes, where is that light going to come from? Jesus calls Himself “the light of the world”, John called him, “the light that shines in the darkness”, and the Bible teaches that, “When we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another.” If I am reading the Word, taking time for prayer and worship then He will walk with me in the light, and He will shine through in my words, actions, attitude, love, compassion, and forgiveness. And why is this so important? The more I sing, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine”, and the louder I sing it, the more people will hear it. My responsibility as a follower of Jesus is to live a life so transformed by the Word and the presence of Christ that everyone can see His light reflected in me. But shining His light isn’t about me; it’s about showing others the love of Christ that their lives may be transformed as well, that Christ may bring them out of their darkness and into His marvelous light. It is so important because lives are at stake. Eternity is at stake. I want to encourage you to brighten your light in this dark world and partner with ZLS this month in showing our students how to shine for Christ. In His Service, Mrs. Baron, Principal
