A LIGHT FOR BUS DRIVERS
Last month, a school district in Batesville, Indiana, received a grant to provide strobe lights to attach to the backpacks of students waiting for school buses. The initiative was born in 2018, after three students in another town were struck and killed by a bus because the driver did not see them. “We don’t know the situation,” a Batesville safety authority said of the bus driver. “But if an extra $1.80 light could have caught the corner of her eye, there might be three kids alive.” Lights flashing in the darkness are protecting precious lives in Batesville today.
A LIGHT FOR THE NATIONS
The Lord told Isaiah that He would raise up His servant and put His Spirit upon Him. This servant was Jesus Christ, who was still yet to come. Isaiah received the prophecy that this servant would be a light to the nations and would open the eyes of the blind. The servant of God purchased lives for God across all time and all humanity. He still opens eyes today.
