"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden."
(Matthew 5:14)

Are we light to those around us? Or darkness, due to our negative attitudes, complaining, criticizing? Somebody once said: "You are the only Bible some people will ever read!"



Tom was in his early 50s, retired and started a second career. However, he just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day, he was five, 10, 15 minutes late. But, he was a good worker and real sharp, so the boss was in a quandary about how to deal with it.

Finally, one day he called Tom into his office for a talk. "Tom, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic. You do a bang-up job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome."

"Yes, I know boss and I am working on it."

"Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear. It's odd though, your coming in late. I know you're retired from the Air Force. What did they say if you came in late there?"

"They said, 'Good morning, General.'"

I suspect that to get to the rank of General, he had to work his way up. So at some point, he knew how to get to work on time.
