You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 5: 14-16
Staying close to God and striving to show His light to the world takes self-discipline. It means sticking with the plan to be better and do better, no matter the cost.
When we spend time with God through His word, through prayer, and by serving others out of love - God's light begins to cover us and radiate around us.
You, my friends, are the light on the hill. You are the beacon through which God's light shines. Stay the course.
