Do you ever feel like you are the only one trying to stand for good in the middle of this evil world? Sometimes it is tough to be a believer in the midst of a world so determined to do everything possible to dishonor God. But we are called to be a light in the darkness. Matthew 5:14 says, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” A city on a hill can be seen for miles in every direction, and while it represent refuge for some, it can sometimes become a target for attack. We are like the city who stands in the darkness of this world. And while we should feel honored to be a reflection of light in the darkness, we can sometimes become an easy target for no other reason than we shine a light on bad things. It can feel scary and lonely, but we must remember The Lord never leaves us standing alone. He is always with us if we trust Him to lead and protect us.
