Guiding Light

I very rarely go out to the movies. Yet; the increase in godly family oriented movies in the last few years is both surprising and encouraging. Those filmed and released through an Albany, GA church are entertaining, thought provoking, and inspirational. They have avoided profanity and explicit scenes; yet, they shed light upon troubling issues of the day.

Likely, many of today’s movie theatres have saved the expense of hiring people as guides from the lobby, to inside the seating area. In days gone by, they were carriers of bright flashlights. The management provided these guides as a courtesy to customers. Today, theatres are equipped with user-friendly track lighting along sides of aisles, at floor level. Customers can purchase favorite snacks from the concession stand, and easily maneuver their way to a favorite seat.

I not only need safety floor lighting in a darkened cinema; I need light in a world of spiritual darkness. Jesus lights my path. “Then Jesus spoke to them again: ‘I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life (John 8:12 HCS).” He is my guiding light, enabling me to carry the light and dispel darkness.
