What I Read Today;

Revelation 16; Matthew 5; Lamentations 2; Psalm 82-83; 1 Kings 21-22; Leviticus 22

Matthew 5 vs. 16, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” NRSV

How does your light shine?

Do people know Jesus because of your actions?

How is your life a living testimony to the grace of God?

I see so many people claiming Christ as their king, yet doing things that do not represent Christ in a good light.  The difficulty, of course, is that we don’t know the heart of those people, but we can judge what we see.

I hear statements like, “hate the sin love the sinner” or my personnel favorite, “speak the truth in love.”  In both cases, the people uttering these statements generally use them to build themselves up at the expense of tearing someone else down.

Before we speak, we should ask ourselves this question, “Is what I’m about to say, showing the light of Christ or not?”

I guess that a lot of what’s said today would not get said.
