Children's Liturgy of the Word

February 5 - Fifth Sunday Ordinary Time

hands 1926414 1280

Jesus tells His disciples gathered for that sermon, and us (reading the story from the Bible) that we all “are like light for the whole world.”  How can we be “like light for the whole world”?  Does He want us to walk around with candles or flashlights to help people when it is dark?  While that would certainly be a good deed, that is probably not what Jesus was thinking.  Jesus talks about lighting a lamp in the house.  He says that no one lights a lamp and then covers it.  Instead, it is put on a stand, and notice what He says, “where it can give life to everyone in the house.”  So it looks like Jesus thinks light is a good thing.  He says, “Make your light shine so that others see the good that you do.”  And you “make your light shine” by doing good works.
