    I was cleaning out a desk drawer when I found a flashlight I hadn't used in over a year. I flipped the switch but wasn't surprised when it gave no light. I unscrewed it and shook it to get the batteries out, but they wouldn't budge.

    Finally, after some effort, they came loose. What a mess! Battery acid had corroded the entire inside of the flashlight. The batteries were new when I'd put them in, and I'd stored them in a safe, warm place. But there was one problem. Those batteries weren't made to be warm and comfortable. They were designed to be turned on---to be used.
    It's the same with us. We weren't created to be warm, safe, and comfortable. You and I were made to be "turned on"---to put our love to work, to apply our patience in difficult, trying situations--to let our light shine.

    Comfort, Security

    1 Thess. 5:14: "Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the febble-minded, support the weak, be patient toward all men."
