Let it Shine

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” Matthew 5:16

It is amazing how this scripture remains an important part of our lives whether we want it to or not. It is expected of believers to live a life before others as examples and role models to help uplift the lives of others and to glorify the Lord. It is a wonderful thing to let our light shine before men so that they can see our good works and glorify our father in heaven. However, I personally pray very hard for those days when I do not feel like being a role model and example. There are days that I may not care if I am doing right and I may not care who is looking.  That is why it is important to understand that we are not our own and that we are committed to Christ. It is not about how I feel but it is about whom I love and serve and that is the living God. It is all about the glorification of the Almighty God and that in itself is enough for me to straighten up my thoughts and my lifestyle so that it honors the Lord. Be encouraged today and know that no matter how you feel, someone is watching your life. Let your light shine before men. Be a good example. You are a role model whether you want to be or not.
