Victory Lighthouse, Italy
Claiming to be the most powerful light beam in the world, the light is visible for more than 35 miles across the Gulf of Trieste. Planes have reported seeing its beam 100 miles away.
So what produces such a huge, far-reaching stream of light? A tremendous lantern?
On the contrary, the light is produced by a tiny, four-centimeter light bulb. Yet this 1000-watt halogen bulb is placed inside a reflecting, rotating optic, magnifying its intensity tenfold.
The performance of the tiny halogen light bulb brings to mind the childhood song, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.”
As with lighthouses, we should also let our lights shine. It doesn’t matter how large the light is, it can still shine when we let it. How can you let your light shine today?
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
