13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13 – 16)
Today, we continue our focus on how we should interact with A World in Need. Yesterday, we focused on being salt. Today, we will focus on being light. As you consider the passage above, please spend some of your time thinking about why Jesus says we are to let our light shine.
- What stands out for you in the illustrations about light that Jesus uses?
- Reflect on the purpose for us being light presented in the passage above. How does the world benefit when we shine our light?
