It’s easy to turn on the news or read about the latest events and become despondent about the world and our future.

It’s tempting to gain a perspective of the world that is as bleak as what we see around us.

Fear, chaos, hopelessness and despair are very powerful and can easily become our domain if we aren’t watchful.

Yet, in the midst of such a climate of negativity, I have hope.

Because even in the darkest night, the bleakest sky and the most desperate situation, the smallest light shines a long way.

Let me encourage you to play your part and be that light.

You can bring hope.

You can bring joy and life and laughter.

Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

And the great news is that it doesn’t take much light to make a difference.

Mother Teresa once said, “No all of us can do great things.  But we can all do small things with great love.”

Now, more than ever, we need acts of love, generosity and compassion to prove that there still is some light left in the world and to give hope to those who can only see darkness.

Will you be a part of that movement?
