The second thing that struck me, on a somewhat more personal level, was found in the imagery of Matthew’s Gospel. As a 21-year-old, the Lord of the Rings movies are something I am, obviously, quite familiar with. Questions of religious links aside, one of the scenes in that movie that always stands vividly in my memory is when Pippen lights the Beacons of Gondor and the call for aid travels through the countryside via fire beacon. As nerdy as it is, the amount of hope and inspiration this scene brings to me never seems to diminish, no matter how many times I see it. Thinking of this in light of Matthew, I began thinking, “What if people acted as these beacons to one another.” Yet again, it was a humbling thought, and left me challenging myself to truly strive to let my light shine, even if to just one person, every single day.
