The Sunday Sermonette: Are You A Lighthouse?

In the early days of sea travel, lighthouses guided ships to a safe harbor. Without them, those ships would have crashed onto the rocky shore. You’re like a lighthouse! The painful events of your life, which you endured and educated you, could be a lighthouse to your family and friends. The wisdom gleaned from your pain might keep them from crashing onto the same rocks you did, rocks which so viciously scarred you.

On life’s tempestuous seas, there’s no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong that a lighthouse’s piercing beacon cannot guide a ship home to safety. Please continue to be that piercing light to your friends and family as you help them navigate the seas of life.

Ponder this and go forth. (Originally published November 20, 2022.)
