The theme for August is "Jesus is our guiding light."
Have your summer travels taken you past any lighthouses? Maybe you even saw one while a storm was raging around it. What a sight! Standing constant, light shining, lighthouses serve a vital purpose for those at sea.
Just as lighthouses guide ships safely into harbor or around dangerous coastlines, God brings us safely home to rest and is our beacon in times of temptation and hardship. He sent us his son Jesus who said: "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" (Jn 8:12).
In Psalm 32 God tells us that he will teach and counsel us, let us pray to always follow him. As the summer winds down, think about this imagery of the lighthouse and enjoy our activities! Just click here.
