Shining Through
Shining Through
We all cast a glow or a shadow or both. Depending on where the sun is shining, right?

Brings me to ask how is the Son of God shining through me?

I feel there is a belief many have (including me often) that humility is being a shadow, staying in the darkness, and definitely avoiding a spot light.

How are we going to show His goodness and share His glory from there?

I am one who prefers to work “behind the scenes” but…
I think it is time for ALL OF US to SHINE!

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 MSG
