Sunday morning …

I remember, as a child, being excited to dress in my Sunday best, and be driven to Sunday School.

I never wanted to be late, because the morning started with singing, and I loved to sing (loving to sing does not necessarily have any connection to being gifted in voice … just ask my children). My favorite songs of Sunday School were Jesus Loves Me (still my favorite) and This Little Light of Mine. I loved the actions too.

Written in about 1920 by Harry Dixon Loes, this song has stood the test of time, though it’s simple, solid message.

According to Wikipedia, the song originated from one of a number of Biblical references:

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in the heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.”
Luke 11:33

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”
Matthew 5:14–15

Addison Road has done a fabulous job with this favorite of mine. The words of the old Sunday School standard, mixed with the truth of the challenges in our lives, to keep our flame burning.

Let it shine!
