Those who know me at all would realise that it would be fairly unlikely that I’d be willing to voluntarily link to the Collingwood website. But this piece by Collingwood defender Harry O’Brien is a beautiful piece of personal reflection, and a genuine witness to the way in which scripture has helped him deal with trouble in his path.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men
These are my favourite bible verses from the book of Matthew 5:14-16. These words hold great meaning to me and my desire is to live my life in this way.
O’Brien shares his family dealing with the suicide of his father. Don’t want to say any more, but I recommend you read it.
