Shine

Matthew 5.16Life isn’t perfect. Our best efforts are never enough. We suffer from guilt, fear, and failure. We see our family and friends struggle. We witness hurt and pain. We don’t understand.

In this darkness, Jesus is the light.

Jesus offers salvation from this world and hope for a world to come. He covers our weaknesses and takes our guilt away. He fills us with joy and love. He calls us to share that with those around us who find themselves in darkness. He calls us to shine!

Not sure what to do? Try these three simple steps:

1. Know that you are a precious child of God!

2. Smile.

3. Express gratitude for your life.

And to get pumped for the day, take a listen to the Newboys classic hit, “Shine,” live from Texas…

Shine
Make ’em wonder what you’ve got
Make ’em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored
Shine
Let it shine before all men
Let ’em see good works, and then
Let ’em glorify the Lord

That is all. Happy Friday!
