Shine Bright


In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
How bright are you shining? Do you think if people were in the same vicinity as you they could tell you were different, meaning filled with the love of Jesus? Are you a 'sunbeam' for God as the children's song goes?

Some ways to show the love of Christ out and about every day is to watch what you say. Glorify God in your speech. In other words, don't enter into gossip or critical speaking or judging others. Next be kind to those around you. Turn a frown into a smile. Let your eyes reflect the joy of the Lord.  Do unexpected things for others such a taking a cart back to the line at grocery for someone. Maybe you could buy an unexpected gift for someone. I actually experienced that a few times in life when I was the recipient of a totally unexpected gift and it really made me smile with joy. The giver too received a huge blessing by doing it.

The point is we are supposed to be the representative of Jesus on Earth until He returns and if you claim to know Him personally then you need to make sure you reflect that. Shine on my friend!

PRAYER: There are times I have been less than joyful and help me remember Lord to shine brightly for you. Help me help someone who does not feel up to 'shining' by doing something kind. In Jesus' name. Amen.
