Year of Shining
“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 KJV – Amplified.
In the dark of night even one small candle can be seen from even a great distance. That same candle can share its flame with another and together they are brighter and light up a larger area. But if the candle tried to hide so that I wouldn’t be so easily seen, then it would never have the opportunity to share its flame. We are called to be the light of the world but too often we only allows ourselves to fully shine when we are together. This year our goal is to challenge our youth to shine all the time and to spread out and share the flame of hope and love of God with others.
