“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Don’t scream at the darkness, just turn on a light. Keep in mind that light always invades darkness not the other way around. If you have a window in a dark room at night there is darkness inside and out. But when you turn on a light, it not only lights up the room but also spills out through the window into the darkness.
When those in darkness see how we react to pressure and trials — how we help, love, respect and relate to others, how we deal with our own shortcomings and sin — they will want some of that fortitude and strength for themselves. In the process, when they see our illuminated good works, God in heaven will be glorified.
A lamppost for Jesus,
