I saw this cartoon on Facebook and knew I had to share. This is called Inner Light by A Joyful ‘toon by Mike Waters.

However, this cartoon uses them to shed some light on pumpkins and Jack-o-lanterns, no pun intended.
One Jack-o-lanterns talks to another. The first one says, “Hey! There’s something different about you what is it?” The second one says, “The carver gave me His light inside! And He can do it for you, too!”.
That is True, Jesus is the light of the World! He is the brightest of all lights. Jesus is the light of the world. He sheds light on those living in darkness, those living in sin. Light reveals and dark conceals. Also the darker the world gets the brighter that light shines. That might be why this one lit pumpkin is so bright, because Halloween is a dark holiday.
Bible Verse Shared on Comic
This comic shares at the bottom of it a Bible Scripture. That verse is from 2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
While you are at it check out this blog post, The Christian is like a pumpkin analogy.

So let your light shine before men!
Let that light shine bright and let them see Jesus in you.
