There are many metaphors around the concept of the lighthouse. Certainly, a ship in a storm is saved by such. We stopped at the Split Rock Lighthouse for a few minutes today, enjoyed the view and considered the metaphors.
What circumstance in your life draws a parallel to the lighthouse? My lighthouse was a person who showed me the way when I was going no where. I'm glad he showed up when he did.
John 9:39 (MSG)
39 Jesus then said, "I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind."
