A lamp that can talk?

Have you ever heard of a lamp that could talk? I have never ever heard of this at all, but I have seen many lamps that have been able to shine. Turn them on and they have light up the room. After all, isn't that what lamps are supposed to do ... shine!?

·       " I would not give much for your religion unless it can be seen. Lamps do not talk, but they do shine." - Source Unknown.

    Our greatest challenge as Christians is to follow up our words with our actions. Non-Christians are not drawn as much to our 'preaching', but they do notice when we "shine" the love of Christ wherever we go. 

    So here is the challenge for today - do we shine as much as we talk? 

Ecclesiastes 5:1-3 - Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

Do not be quick with your mouth,
    do not be hasty in your heart
    to utter anything before God.
God is in heaven
    and you are on earth,
    so let your words be few.
A dream comes when there are many cares,
    and many words mark the speech of a fool.

Living in Grace
