God has called us all to be the light of the world.

What does that really mean to you?

To me it means that God has put His love and light inside of me to be shown as love to those that need His love and not someone who just points out all their faults and condemns. They already know where they are falling short you don’t need to remind them of that, That’s being a spotlight, bringing a strong focus on the bad. Be a light a gentle glow, by  reminding them of God’s love towards them.

Don’t focus on what others are doing wrong. Instead, be a light in their life, a positive influence, a difference maker.

Matthew 5:14 in the Message says:

14-16 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.

God has put in us attributes that the world needs to see and experience.

Stop hiding under a rock or inside a bucket, share what you have with others before you suffocate that gift and your light goes out.

Use what are who you are everyday by being just YOU to someone who needs you today.

Yes, Someone needs you!

Stop thinking, well Im not really good at anything, what can I offer to anyone.

Those are the wrong thoughts to have, God made you special and unique, you have gifts and talents that someone else needs.

So today, put your feelings (lying feelings) aside and go be and do what God told you to do if you FEEL like it or not.

Go public with this as the scripture says, be that light someone needs today, keep your house open to those in need of what you got.

Remember by opening your gifts to others will prompt or lure others to  open up to God!

Shine Bright, Like the Diamond He has made you to be!

What ways have you allowed your light to shine and become an example of God’s love?
