Helping Hand

My father taught me at a young age, the secrets of Coon hunting. 

Coon Hunting was one of fathers favorite things to do, we went at night when the moon was full, and it wasn't to cold, these little guys were clever and hard to catch.

They had special ways of out smarting the best of dogs; and for the most part humans as well, to help us navigate the darkness of the night,  we used a kerosene lantern.

While searching the woods for the coons, we often heard the owls doing their "Hoo Hoo Hoooooo Owl call making the night some what spooky.

On a good night of hunting we might catch four or five of those cute little fellows.

Mother often said, she could spot our little lantern shinning,  long before we reached home.

As Christians, we are to let our little light shine so others may see Jesus in the darkness of the world, much like the little light from the lantern allowed us to see at night,  to find our way home.

The smallest of light, will dispel darkness, and attract those in darkness to it.

 Our hunting dogs were good to help us pursue and find the Coons, We are to be good and help others pursue and find Jesus.

The world we live in, is full of hatred selfishness, bitterness, and evil of every imagination, our little light is needed , many are looking for a way out of darkness, and into the light of Christ.

Jesus left us this reminder.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
                                                              Mark  16:15

Are you willing to let your little light shine for those around you? who maybe struggling, and unable to find their way.

 Your light could make the difference for them to find their way to Christ, "How awesome it is to be of help to others."

I learned early in my Life, You will never go wrong extending a helping hand.  and you want either if you decide to.

Until next time,  God Bless you, and be sure to let your light shine for those around you.
