“LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN”
A little girl on the way home from church turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, the preacher’s sermon this morning confused me.”
The mother said, “Oh! Why is that?”
The girl replied, “Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?”
“Yes, that’s true,” the mother replied.
“He also said that God lives within us. Is that true, too?”
Again the mother replied, “Yes.”
“Well,” said the girl. “If God is bigger than us and he lives in us, wouldn’t He show through?”
I like that little girl’s way of putting it. If God lives in us, then there’s no way of keeping Him from “showing through”. That’s the essence of Christian living — living in such a way that people around will see God in our lives.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
