Matthew 5:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Looking around there are lights everywhere. In the town where I live the park puts up hundred thousands of lights every year. The light display is designed to attract and impress people who drive for many miles to see the light presentation.
Isn’t that what we Christians are supposed to do? We are supposed to be Gods light to a dark world. One way we can do that is by doing good deeds that illuminate the love that God has for his creation. These acts of love should point people back to the the love of Christ and the work that God is doing in the world. Theses deeds of kindness should shine so bright as to attract others to the love of God that is illuminating through you.
I hope this advent season you to will let Christs love SHINE through you!
