Light and the Clean Air Act

August 9, 2014

CAA and LightSentiment: “I don’t want to draw attention to myself.  I think the Clean Air Act should be improved, but I don’t want to be out there looking like, ‘Hey, look at me—aren’t I wonderful?’”

What’s wrong with looking like you are wonderful?  You are wonderful.

And how is the world improved by not letting your light shine?

The goal is not to be better than others.  Or to be better than one’s self.  But to be better than self.  Putting a bushel on the light isn’t modesty—it’s in truth, selfishness . . . and an unwillingness to abandon self and become translucent to the light.

Time to let your light shine.

 ——-“We must let our light shine, make our faith, our hope, our love manifest—that men may praise, not us for shining, but the Father for creating the light.”—George MacDonald
