V17 – From Warrior to Lamp – 2 Sam 21:15-17
Growing older? Every Christian community needs good lamps. Be there! Give your moral support to those who are learning, struggling and fighting. Smile your approval. When you meet those who are open, calmly share some of your wisdom, spiritual insights and stories of life and faith. Be a mentor. Let your light shine and your warmth glow. Don’t stop. Don’t disconnect. Don’t simply retire to a life of self-absorption. Choose to transition from warrior to lamp, and choose to do so graciously.
