He himself was not the light; he came to tell about the light.

John 1:8

In today’s reading, people ask John the Baptist how to prepare for the coming of Jesus. He says that sharing is one of the most important things.

Jesus is the Son of God and he shows us how we should live – he is a shining light in the darkness for us to follow. If we share the light of Jesus we can see so much more; if we share the light of Jesus we can light up the whole world!

How can we share the light of Jesus with others today?


Generous God,

We thank you for all the good things that you have given us.

Help us to follow the example of Jesus, to care for others and to bring good news to all our brothers and sisters around the world.
