1 Peter 5:2 “Be Shepherds of God’s
flock that is under your care…”
“Later, Jesus talked to the people saying, I am the light of the world. The person who follows me will never live in darkness but will have the light that gives life.” John 8:12
How much light do you give the world? In watts would you be a 25 watt, 60 watt, or a 100 watt? Others around you see your light. Don’t live in darkness.
