When Ivy posted the Six Sentence Story prompt for the week, I had a light bulb moment. (See what I did there?) Anyway, I've been excited about the month of December for some time now, and this prompt provided me the perfect opportunity to share a little bit about why I am excited. This week's prompt? LIGHT
Jesus taught, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matt. 5:16) He showed compassion, mercy, and love to others, "went about doing good," (Acts 10:38) and encouraged us to do the same. (Matt. 25:40) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to celebrate the upcoming Christmas season, is launching a #LightTheWorld campaign. The church is inviting everyone to join in a worldwide day of service on December 1st, to serve anyone we want, anyway we want. Each day in December leading up to Christmas will then focus on a particular attribute of Christ, and encourage us to follow in His footsteps through service. I'm excited for this reminder to keep service a daily priority; will you join me in participating?
Thanks for light.
