Joshua 2:1-24; Hosea 10:1-11:11; Luke 20:1-19

For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now. Philippians 1:4
Among whom ye shine as lights in the world. Philippians 1:15

The Philippians’ interest in supporting the Gospel started from the first day of their Christian experience. Their passion continued, and Paul commended them for the light they were shining into the world. Are we like them—stars shining in the world’s darkness. We can shine by our lives, our words and by giving from our resources to further the cause of the Gospel. —Jim Paul

Jesus bids us shine with a clear pure light,
Like a little candle burning in the night.
In this world of darkness, we must shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine. —Susan B. Warner
