Let Your Light Shine Before Men

All of us know someone that can just light up a room with their mere presence. They are usually smiling, happy, cheerful, and glowing. You feel as if they do not have a care in the world.

Sometimes we expect other people to bring joy into our lives, but we are not bringing joy into the lives of others. When your mind is being renewed others can tell because the work done on the inside begins to show on the outside. This is referred to as a shining light. As your thoughts change, you begin to change your way of doing things.

When others see that you are changed from your old ways, then they will want to know your secret. How do you maintain happiness in the midst of a storm? This is now your oportunity to let them know that God loves them and they too can be a part of the family of God.

If your light is not shining, and you are struggling, and you are not renewing your mind, then no one is going to want what you have.

You see, THE WORD doesn't change. And we are changed by the renewing of our mind. Renew your mind and let your light shine.

  • Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
