Shine brightly.

What you do speaks much louder than what you say. So often people will speak about their life…their faith…their commitments…but how many people truly do their best to apply what they say? A non-Christian may argue that Christians can be hypocrites…that what they see Christians do…is not what they say they are. None of us can be perfect or without fault…it’s not possible. However, we can all develop character that portrays our purpose and our decision to follow God. Do your best to be your best…and treat others in the best manner possible. Learn from the mistakes and admit those times when we went left when we should have gone right. Live as good and right as possible. Think as positive as possible, and be determined to trust in God…regardless of the situation. These things will shine brightly in you…a Christian witness. Your life will be a living example of God’s love…unconditional forgiveness…and the hope that we have in God’s promises.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” MATTHEW 5:16

Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 1 TIMOTHY 4:16

God is with us.
