The groundhog saw his shadow, and now we all suffer from six more weeks of winter. It’s a shame the critter didn’t live in my town—it was so overcast that day there were no shadows to be seen.
What about you? Are you casting a shadow—a shadow of influence that touches those around you? As we preach the Word clearly and boldly, as we minister faithfully in Christ’s name, we cast a shadow of gospel witness that impacts those in our immediate vicinity, and often some we never may know until eternity. Likewise, when we fail to be faithful to our calling, our shadows can lead some away from the gospel.
Think about the shadow you’ll cast this week.
