I love to paint and I love to take photographs. I love capturing a lot of different colors, especially bright colors and colors that are not seen so often. I remember when I was in Australia there were many times when I tried to capture the sky at a particular time in the afternoon. My camera could not quite capture what my eyes could see. Again and again I failed with my attempts. I am always amazed at God’s paintbrush. I often say, “Wow, You really outdid Yourself today.” He is awesome.
Matthew tells us to be the light of the world. The Message says, “You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.” God colors. Wow. God has some amazing colors. Just think about all those awesome brilliant skylines I saw in Australia. I couldn’t capture them with my digital camera. And we are to be God colors in the world? Wow.
Each one of us is a different bright color of God that can shine for others. We are the salt of the earth. More and more we see the darkness of the world. We see a lot of things God never intended for His Creation. Too much darkness. Too much gloom. But God uses His God colors to shine through the world, to shine a bright light, for His glory. May you be a God color today and always. Never hide the Light. God is not a secret to be kept. Shine on.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept.”
-Matthew 5:14 [MSG]
