I get daily inspirational quotes from Gratefulness.org. I love these people! The Holy Spirit seems to send just what I need when I need it through them. Not every day, mind you, but often enough. This one arrived recently.
Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.Rumi
A lamp, a lifeboat, or a ladder. Would one of these describe you? I love the ‘walk out of your house like a shepherd.’ How do you approach your interactions with others? Do you go forth determined to shed light and help those round about you?
Food for thought indeed.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.Matthew 5:16 NIV
Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;1 Peter 5:2 NIV
