“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
I sleep with a nightlight every night. I’ve done it all my life. I’m 9 years old. I sleep with a nightlight because it helps me feel safe and it helps me see in the dark. It helps me know where I am. My nightlight helps me not fall on any toys when my room is messy. When my nightlight is not on at night, I feel scared and I can’t see anything at all. I do not like that.
Nightlights are kind of like Jesus. Jesus said “I am the light of the world.” What he meant was that if you worship him and believe in him, he will help you. He will guide you. He will make you feel safe, he will help you know where you are, and he will help you know the way. Just like my nightlight.
Dear Lord, thank you for being the light of our world. Thank you for guiding me and making me feel safe. Please help more people worship and believe in you. And, help us be light to others. Amen.
