The Upper Room 20th March 2024 Devotional: Guiding Light

Read and Study Today’s The Upper Room Daily Devotional for March 20, 2024 Message written by Paul Kurpengmund Anda (East Sepik, Papua New Guinea). God bless you as you study today! Please share with your friends and loved ones.


TODAY’S READING
Matthew 5:13-16

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
When I show kindness and love to others, I bring light to their lives.

You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. – Matthew 5:14 (NRSVUE)

Traveling on a ship at night gave me a new appreciation for the power of light. The lights on the ship shone brightly, but the open sea was dark and scary. I could not see anything, but I imagined the vast body of water. It made me feel helpless.

But then in the early morning, as we neared the port, we could see the light from a lighthouse on a hill. Through the darkness, the light in the distance guided our ship toward the port. That beacon made my heart leap with joy and gave me a sense of comfort.

Like a lighthouse in the dark, Christians can show God’s light to weary souls through our actions. Kindness allows people to experience the goodness of the love and life of our Savior Jesus Christ. When people are lost in the open sea of life’s struggles, the light of Christ shines bright. Many are weary, longing for rest and comfort. We can be a beacon for them, guiding them to find comfort in God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, help us to keep our lights shining amid the challenges we face so that we may help others find their way. Amen.
