Matthew 5:14-16 14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
We are loved by God SO deeply and he graces us with not only life and his presence, but we are also gifted – with time, talents, resources and more. So often when we look at what we have, we forget that we are called to use what we’ve been given to “shine like stars in the night” for the sake of the Kingdom. So, first we are going to remind ourselves of the depth of God’s love for us and then we’re going to look at how we take what we’ve been given, and SHINE!
