Let us purpose in our hearts to shine for Christ in all we do in the upcoming year. For His honor, for His glory, for His soon coming.

A merchant once came to a village selling small stones he claimed would glow at night. Each stone came in a fancy wooden box. By the time the merchant left the village, he had sold quite a few of the precious stones.


People who could afford a stone gathered family and neighbors at their homes at sunset in excited anticipation to see the stone glow. But what a disappointment when darkness came, and the stone did not glow!
