God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years.” - Genesis 1:14 (NRSV)

When I think of signs that keep people safe or offer guidance, I first think of traffic lights, lighthouses, and billboards. But we often forget how much more valuable we are as signs that have the potential to show others the hope, joy, and direction God can give to them....

Today's Prayer
O Lord, teach us to be beacons of hope, living signs of your transforming power, and active witnesses to your salvation. In the name of Jesus who taught us to pray, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matt. 6:9-13, NIV). Amen.
