You are the light of the world…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (from Matthew 5:14-16)

Lord Christ, I believe those instructions to your original team of disciples apply to me as well. They are compelling words, but it’s all very challenging.

How do we define or describe your light? And how do we shine? How do we live as light?

Living by Kingdom values
that others are drawn to your light.

Extending compassion and mercy
that others are warmed by your light.

Modeling purpose with peace
that others are inspired by your light.

Father, it is my intention to serve you faithfully today. Infuse me with your Spirit for good deeds…that I may light a path for others…that your light will shine in their lives. Amen.
