Christmas lights are great, but they're not very impressive until you take them out of the box, hang them on your house or tree, plug them in and turn them on. Matthew 5:16 says, Make your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and will praise your Father in heaven. When we shine by being kind, being loving, being generous, being compassionate, being patient...it gives glory to God. But you can't shine on your own, you need to be plugged in. Next time you pass your Christmas tree or the neighbour's house that's all lit up, consider what you are doing to shine the light of Christ this Christmas.
