Passage: Matthew 5:13-20
Verses: Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
I love this passage of Scripture! As Christians, we are to stand out from the crowd… and stand up for Christ! May we be the light of Christ in those darkened places in the world around us. May the message of the gospel shine brightly through our words, deeds, and attitudes. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
