The Luminous Box

I was listening to this sermon the other day and the pastor used this story as an illustration. I found it interesting and thought I’d share:

A couple went to France on vacation one year and bought a box from a shop. The storekeeper told them that when placed in the dark the box lit up. That night the couple put the box in the dark and nothing happened. They returned to their native country and had a friend, who could read French, read the instructions to them. It said that as long as you put the box in the sun in the daylight the box would light up at night. The couple did as the instructions said and that night the box shone beautifully.

Now you may ask me, “What does that have to do with anything?”
Well, metaphorically, we’re the box and God’s the sun and we need to bask in God’s light, in his wisdom. We need to absorb what he has to teach us through his Word in order to shine in the darkness. And I know, for a fact, that I have a lot to learn.

"Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” –Joshua 1:7; 8

Your Sister in Christ,
