Let your Light Shine Before Others

Matthew 5:16 (NIV) ~ 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

There’s a light inside all of us.

Too many people squint and turn away from the light. Let your eyes adjust and bathe in the radiance. We control how brightly our light shines.

There are times when we dim our light to let others shine. In a world that may seem off-skewed at times, so many people are afraid to speak up for fear of what others have to say or think about them.


Because we are physical and spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being filtered or blocked. We can work from the outside inward, knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, and as we clear away the layers we can get out of our way to feel the warmth of our light shining again.

We are magnificent co-creators who were put here to maximize our full potential!

  1. I do agree that we are the ones who control our lights. Sometimes others can try to put out the light because they are not used to what it looks like. I love this post because it encourages us to keep shining the light regardless of what others do and say. It takes practice. However, the more we practice shining our light, the easier and better we get at it. Thank you for sharing!
