14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
16 Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” – Matthew 5:14-16Matthew 5:14-16
Today’s Bible Quote of the Day Inspiration – Matthew 5:14-16
Indeed, we are the Light of the World and also the Salt of the World. Jesus tells us that we should become the light of the world. What does He mean?
The light illuminates a space or a place so that we can see, judge and act. In the absence of light we cant do anything tangible.
For us to become the Light of the World as Jesus commands, we are supposed to first, possess the virtues of Christ, hear His teachings and follow Him and secondly, become good examples to others in an open manner by exhibiting all good things that Christ taught us.
Jesus tells us that we will be of no use to the Kingdom of God if our good deeds do not make others to glorify God. Just like salt which cannot make food to taste good, is useless, those whose good deeds do not attract people to God, will be thrown out and people will trample on them.
So, today let our good deeds become visible to everyone so that God can be glorified in our work and love for others. Let us become good role models to others and glory and honour will be to the Almighty God.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, You have commanded us to become the Light of the World and Salt of the Earth. Give us strength, courage and humility so that we can become perfect examples to others and bring them closer to You. Amen.
