Today I took Aspen to a class where the teacher asked everyone what they wanted to be when they grew up.  There was the usual assortment of veterinarian, ballerina, police man, and so forth.  One little boy about five spit out a mouthful, he said he wanted to be a worker for the Transportation Department of Pennsylvania.  My guess is that is this little boys father works for the Transportation Department of Pennsylvania.

Little children want to do things just like their parents.  As we live in the presence of our Father in heaven we automatically want to do what He does.  “….God is light, and there isn’t any darkness in Him.”  (1 John 1:5)   The light of God illuminates truth, happiness, wisdom, purity.  “Christ is the Light; we will shine reflected light if we walk in his light.  If we give forth light it will honor God.”  (Matthew 5:16)  The smallest light in the darkness is of great use.
