Playing with sparklers on a warm summer night is fun. Here are some of the things we did with them. They are beautiful, but only last for a short time. Sort of like us. We are beautiful to God because he created us and he loves us. We were only put here for a short time, but while we are here, we are meant to be fireworks to the rest of the world. And to do this, God has put a spark in you; the Holy Spirit. “God has poured his love into our hearts by the Holy spirit, whom he has given us.” God tells that when we love him and seek to do his will, we will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown. When you let your own light shine before men, He tells us that the darkness will never overpower it! Sparklers are fun, but they are nothing compared to the fire we can put into this world using prayer, discernment, and the Holy Spirit to show us our special gifts. Let’s let our light shine as brightly as the sun for the short time we have on earth, and while we’re at it, praise God for the wonderful beauty He has put all around us and for the great love of his redeeming Son!!
