The stones cry out

Last year many in the U.S. observed a once-in-a-lifetime total solar eclipse, when the moon came between the Earth and the sun, plunging a wide swath of the county briefly into the darkness of the moon’s shadow.  This happens because the moon has no light of  its own, but only reflects the light of the sun. Therefore, when the moon gets between the Earth and the sun it eclipses the sun’s light.

Just as the moon is meant to reflect the sun, Christians are meant to reflect Christ, spreading the Good News of His life and love on everyone in our path.

Does your life reflect Jesus, or do you sometimes get between Him and others, blocking the light of salvation? Do your actions blot out His glory? Do you try to hide your faith, concealing it for fear of ridicule or offense? Do you try to upstage the Savior with your own self-righteousness?

All of creation speaks of God’s glory and reminds us of our responsibility to Our Lord, if we will listen.

“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” – Luke 19:40
