This is a note to my grumpy self this morning.
Let’s talk about how fabulous you think I am…
Kidding, of course. But we ARE to be like a city on a Hill, shining the light of Jesus into every dark corner (and to every rude waitress who gets your gluten-free order wrong, and on every rainy Sunday when you’d rather stay home and snuggle up).
“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.” ~Matthew 5:16
See, the main thing is the light has to point back to God. For within us, without the Holy Spirit, there isn’t much in the way of light. It’s pretty grimy and gritty in there. And that light is what separates us from the rest of the world. It’s what points others to God…that’s a pretty big responsibility. Especially in the face of waitresses who get your gluten free order wrong for the third time and on rainy Sundays when you’d rather stay home and snuggle up and sleep.
