Just leavin' a light on for ya . . .
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
―John 1:5, NLT
"Necessity is the mother of invention."
The author of this proverb is not known, but it is often ascribed to the Greek philosopher, Plato. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, this expression means―if someone really needs to do something, they will think of a way to do it.
When Thomas Edison, the inventor of the first commercially practical incandescent light, was asked if he was afraid of anything he replied, "I am afraid of the dark."
On December 31, 1879, at the age of thirty-two, Edison gave the first public demonstration of his incandescent light bulb in Menlo Park, New Jersey. It was during this time that he said: "We will make electricity so cheap that only the rich will burn candles."
Thomas Edison died October 18, 1931. He was eighty-four. All the lights in his New Jersey home were burning.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”―John 8:12, NIV
In the same way, we are to let our light shine before others. Someone may need you to be a light in their darkness. Think of a way to do it.
