“Lighthouses Don’t Fire Cannons”
Imagine your out at sea in one of the old ship’s. Big mast and rigging the wind is raging the rain and is coming down sideways in sheets. Lightning is flashing the ship’s mast are all lowered. The rocks of the coast are encroaching upon you. Oh, you know there is a lighthouse out there, but where is that light, you can’t see it?
I don’t think you would want the lighthouse to fire it’s cannon at you. But rather to shine the Lighthouse light to guide you home
Safely into the harbor.
Inspirational quote in history.
“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”
D. L. Moody
There are many ways to let your lighthouse of life shine and inspire others.
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
President Roosevelt let his lighthouse of life shine out in his daily life by trying to give to those who had less than he did. “ it is more blessed to give than receive KJV Acts 20:35
I think he grasped the meaning of Life’s Daily Inspiration. A man who by and through his life inspired others to live life to the fullest.
Not Just Money
Giving means much more than just money. There are many ways to give whether it’s of you time, or of you talents as the case maybe. For instance, maybe you have a beautiful voice and can sing. Or maybe you can spare time to sit and read to the elderly. Or go shopping for a neighbor, because that has become a challenge for them. Or just to inspire others by your every day life.
I once read, character is what you are in the dark.
Being a lighthouse of life is seen by all, every day of you life in all kinds of circumstances, good times, sad times, stressful times, or gloriously happy times you light is out there either being a life’s daily inspiration to others or not.
