Matthew 5:16 (NKJV)
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
How many times in life do we use our talents and gifts? Everything we have comes from God and we are to share with others. In sharing with others we are giving God all the glory when we allow others to see the light through us, they then receive the blessing from our sharing and they know that it came to them through us from God. When they realize the help came from God it will show them that He cares for them. It will also show them that you care about them. Most importantly when His light shines through you He gets all the glory.
Understand not all the works have to be financial. We cross paths with people everyday for His purpose. We may need to share a smile, lend a listening ear, give an encouraging word, fix a flat, spend time in the Word and in prayer with them, or any other gift you have been blessed with that you are to share. Gifts are given to you, paths are crossed for a reason, and God gets all the glory when you plant or harvest in His perfect season for Him to get all the glory.
I love to encourage others to be all they are to be and to become obedient to all that God wants to do through them. My challenge to you today: are you doing all you can for Him to be glorified? Start each day in prayer and ask God to show you throughout the day opportunities for you to share what He has blessed you with so that He gets all the glory.
