Shine Your Light

Mathew 5:16 … it’s interesting that here, Jesus is the light of the world, and we are told to shine our own light too; much like in Matthew 16:24 we’re asked to take up our own cross.

What’s your cross and what is your light like as you seek the goodness?

Very deeply, very intimately, this seems to be the biggest parabolic, rhetorical message of Christ that we always move into, for the Christian, asking and answering first (Matthew 16:15) “Who do you say that I am?”

The comfort is that no group of people have answered in the same way, nor does any individual make out the question or answer like anyone else.

Christian or not, the question still remains … what is the good and how will you shine its light?

Just a thought.
