Why LITe? The Bible talks a lot about light. Right from Genesis when God said
"Let there be light" and there was light! (Genesis 1:3 In the Bible, darkness is often used as a picture of sin and wrong. In John 12:46 Jesus said "I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark."
God is light, and when we know God as our Savior from our sins, then we live in His light and truth. God wants all of us to show His character and truth to others around us through how we live and what we say. As we become leaders, it is especially important that we know God and that the people we are leading can see His character shining through us. Here is a word picture that Jesus used to describe those who know God:
"You are the light of the world-like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father"
