"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
That verse is one of my all time favorites.
I don't want you thinking this blog is all about Lecrae, it's not.
But Lecrae is an example to me and a whole lot of ministers out there on how to be a light and how to let your light shine.
He gives it all whether or not it's a packed crowd or not, whether or not his DJ is DJ Official or not, whether or not Trip Lee, Tedashii, Sho Baraka, etc are on the stage beside him, supporting him, whether or not the stage he is ministering on is the best looking one or not.
That gets me thinking big time... which leads to this question.
I ask you(and me) as a challenge as a minister and a believer:
Are you shining your light only when it's all glamorous and fine all around you?
or do you shine and reflect God's light when it seems like you're alone in the slums of life?
Be a light.
God bless you.
