Matthew 5:16

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:16

One of my friends who runs a religious site on the Internet emailed me the other day regarding the recent controversy in the US about having God intricately intertwined in some of our Nation's traditions.  It was interesting because that day we had sung "The Star-Spangled Banner" in church, which talks about the "heav'n rescued land" and attributes the preservation of our Nation to God.  This scripture talks about letting our lights shine... sharing our light with others, but also makes it clear who is the source of the light. :)  God is behind our light and our goodness. :)  As we strive to build communities which embrace truth and light, let's remember who the author of all truth is.
