“You are the world’s light—it is impossible to hide a town built on the top of a hill…Let your light shine like that in the sight of men. Let them see the good things you do and praise your Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 5: 14, 16, JB Phillips New Testament)
You make a difference. You have the power and the beauty in you to make an impact. Don’t be shy about it. It’s not ego to shine the light that God gave you. It’s respect, wisdom, and it is loving.
We can enlighten the lives and lighten the burdens of those around us and of the world at large as we honor that Truth within us. We can act like the children of light that we are, and that means staying above the negative pull of the darkness. It means recognizing and claiming our own true purpose and the power of God that comes with it.
We can act in our lives as representatives of God. We can daily remind ourselves that going along with things, drifting along with the flow of the world’s limited view, is not good enough for God and it’s not good enough for us.
You are light. Own that description and express it willingly, humbly, and for the glory of God Who is the Source, the Love, the Life of you and of all.
