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

All the women in our local village church decided they would give our new pastor and his wife firewood for a year. These Christian ladies delegated the work among themselves so the new pastor and his wife would have fuel for cooking every day.

The women quietly went about the task of bringing firewood every day without complaint. At the end of the year, the pastor publicly thanked all the women in the church for their gift of love, sacrifice, and generosity.

These Christian ladies allowed their lights to shine before everyone in church and the village. Their good deeds were seen and the praise was given to the Father in heaven. Let us shine our deeds of good works before men that they may see them and praise our Heavenly Father.

Lord Jesus, let our lights shine before men.
