Men, how aware are we of the great battle, in both the spiritual and physical realms, to stop the light shining in and from our home? We must understand that God wants our home to be a type of mini church. Just as we are both individually and collectively the temple of the Holy Spirit, even so our home should be viewed in the same way. Whatever we would not allow in the church, e.g. worldly movies and music, worldly literature, and ungodly electronics etc., should not be fit for our lighthouses.
The truth is that whatever we allow into our home is what will come out of our home. The other truth is that whatever we allow into our home will also be what we allow into our own heart and life.
What effect would a lighthouse have to warn ships of dangerous rocks if the keeper of the lighthouse filled its interior with more and more of the same rocks it was supposed to be warning against? How crazy that would be. And yet this is exactly what multitudes of "Christian" lighthouses are doing. Many homes, like ships, are trying to navigate their way through the storms of life, but where are the brilliant lighthouses with each family member another powerful flashing light bulb warning of the dangers of worldly rocks that can are destroying so many family ships trying to find a safe harbor.
Matthew 5:14-16 says, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
