Would you rather be a star or a moon? A star radiates light from itself. For example, the sun is a star and it emits light. A moon on the other hand reflects the light from another source, like another star. The moon of the earth radiates the light from the sun in our solar system.
Many a times, we try very hard to be a star that the world would see and admire, while all the time, we ought to be like the moon, radiating the radiance of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Dearly beloved, let us be imitators of Jesus Christ.
Points to ponder:
To be a star is akin to trying to be God.
To be a moon is akin to being an imitator of God.
Would your rather be a star or a moon?
Ephesians 5:1-2 (ESV)
1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.
2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us andgave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
