Last week after church Madi and I had a Girl Scout cookie booth. We spent quite a bit of time selling cookies at booths this year. Madi has a pretty good pitch when each person walks by and this particular afternoon we were sharing our booth with a young lady that hadn’t done a booth yet. Madi was giving her all kinds of tips and telling her to smile and be nice and then she says “You may be the only light in their life today.”
So, I had a proud mommy moment and Madi had a huge impact on that young girl, her mother and the many people she smiled at that day. Madi had heard those same words spoken by Callie during intercessory prayer earlier that morning.
There are a million ways to influence someone. There is power in our actions and our words. Callie prayed from her heart and influenced Madi, who shared it with a friend, who smiled at every person that passed them that day. They went out and became the very thing Callie had prayed for.
Ephesians 5:8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
Will you be the only light someone may see today?
