“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may
see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:16

A story is told of a man who would stop every morning to pick up
the early edition of the newspaper at a small grocery store. One
morning when he arrived at work, the man found that by mistake
he had taken two newspapers instead of one. He first thought of
paying the grocer the extra price the next morning. But then after a
moment’s consideration, he got in his car, drove back to the store,
and returned the paper.
About a week later, the shop owner discovered that someone had
stolen money from the grocery store. When police pinpointed the
time it occurred, the grocer remembered only two people being in
the store at the time—and one was the man who had returned the
The grocer immediately dismissed the man as a suspect, saying,
“That man is really honest. He came all the way back here just to
return a newspaper he took by mistake.” The police then focused
their investigation on the other man, who soon made a full
confession. This man’s honesty made a big impression on that non-
Christian storeowner.
As Christians, our walk should always resemble our talk. This is
especially true in the eyes of a watching world, whose impressions
and opinions of Christianity are formed based upon their
interactions with Christians. So when it comes to honesty, live far
above reproach, letting your good works shine in a dark world and
bringing glory to God!

Ask God to help you live the kind of life that points others to Jesus
What are some areas of your life today where you can be a light to
people who don’t know Jesus Christ?
