Bright and Shining

today's reading.
Luke 8:16-18; Matthew 5:14-16

the blog.
Today we arrive at a very familiar passage where Jesus talks about a lamp. This happens to be one of my favorite passages because it addresses an issue that I am passionate about (sharing Christ with others). I also like it because Jesus uses such a common object to deliver an understandable and powerful point. There's no doubt after finishing up these few verses that we are to be highly visual advocates for Christ. 

So how are you doing in the "shine" department? What's one example of how you've let your light shine before others in the past week or so? Will you ask God to help you show Christ to someone this week? Tami
