Shining God's Light

The current section of scriptures that we are working on memorizing is the Sermon on the Mount starting in Matthew chapter 5. A few verses there that really speak to me are these:

 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden: nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16

I think this teaching is so very important. Our goal in life should not be to spread our own ideas but rather to shine God's light so that He is glorified and praised. May we let His Holy Spirit which lives within us shine through us through the joy that we have, the love that we share and the peace that is ever abiding in our lives.
