Twenty-Ninth Day of Lent
Thank you that by your grace we are allowed to be in your presence.
When Moses spent time in your presence, his face shined so brightly that he had to wear a veil so that other people could stand to be around him. Remind us that in our case if people can’t stand to be around us it’s likely because we are shining our own light rather than because we are reflecting yours.
How brightly do our lives shine as a result of our having been in your presence? If they don’t shine very brightly—or if they don’t shine at all—give us courage to face the reasons why, most of which likely have to do with us.
Your Son Jesus told us to let our light shine before people. Give us your light. Enable us to let it shine.
