Candle: Inspired to Be the Light

Turn on the candle. Take a moment to gaze in silence.

Say:

Light and flame help us remember the Holy Spirit, the inspiring part of God in each of us. In fact, the word inspired means to be Spirit-filled.

Jesus understood how inspiring the image of light could be. One day, he told his friends – I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

He also said to each of them – You are the light of the world.

We get to do more than see the light. When we become inspired to try to live as Jesus lived, we get to be the light. The words we say, and the way we treat people can inspire others to be the light.

As you look at the light, think about one kind thing you could do or say that might inspire someone else.

Now let’s sing This Little Light of Mine together.

This little light of mine – I’m going to let it shine.

This little light of mine – I’m going to let it shine.

This little light of mine – I’m going to let it shine.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
