Shine On!

Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3

Daniel’s writing about the End Times, but the wise and the righteous light our paths, even now.

You're not wise, you say? I beg to differ!

Has God walked with you through some difficult situations? If so, you have the wisdom of confidence and faith in His provision. Someone who’s struggling needs to hear that.

Have you suffered loss and been comforted by God’s peace? Someone suffering needs to hear that.

You are wiser than you know.

“Those who lead others to righteousness will shine like the stars.” What a wonderful metaphor. For hundreds of years, travelers used the stars to guide them on their journeys.

We’re all on a journey, with God as our guide. As He leads us, so can we lead others.

Do you know someone fighting temptation? Share a truth from Scripture that strengthened you and will encourage them.
Is someone struggling with a difficult decision? Share truths that guide you and will help them hear God’s voice.

 You are a wise, shining leader, even now. Watch for opportunities to shine on others.

Who has been an example of righteousness, encouraging you when you need strength?
Who has been a bright star, guiding you through a difficult decision?
When have you had the joy of shining into someone else’s life?
