Motel 6 is infamous for their catchy slogan, “We’ll leave the light on for you!” What that means is really not the purpose of this post. I just like the idea of the “LIGHT” always being on! Which means, at any time I decide to stop by a Motel 6 after dark, the light should and better be on.
I’ll be honest, Motel 6 is not my hotel of choice. I don’t remember the last time I stayed in one, desired to stay in one, or considered staying in one. However, after thinking about their slogan/tag line, I’ve realized that the Motel 6 ideology actually lines up with my theology. LOL, that rhymed, and who said rapping was hard.
Moving on….when I read my Bible, Matthew 5:16 encourages us to “Leave the LIGHT ON!” It says, “In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.”
So this is my appeal to you, whether your a Christian, Muslim, Buddhists, Atheist, or belong to the Church of Scientology, we ALL have a LIGHT to shine. To quote Mos Def, “Umi says, shine your light on the world.” The world can truly benefit from your LIGHT! Heck, your LIGHT, could spark my LIGHT. Your LIGHT could help and heal someone. Your LIGHT could inspire someone! Your LIGHT could give hope to someone. Your LIGHT matters!
So, if your a social worker, engineer, preacher, writer, janitor, speaker, president, teacher, student, mother, father, son, daughter, blogger, publicist, athlete, lawyer, doctor, bus driver, truck driver, singer, dancer, maid, chef, poet, nurse, steel worker, coal miner, or
African American, African, Caucasian, Asian, Native American, Hispanic, or
Delta, AKA, Omega, Alpha, Kappa, Sigma, Iota, or
Republican, Democratic, Independent, or
Upper, Middle, Lower, No class, or
just YOU……Do us all a favor and
LEAVE THE LIGHT ON!!!
P.S. Shine Baby Shine!
