"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)
God created each of us uniquely in His own image. We are not to compare ourselves with others. Instead, we are to strive to do our best in everything we do to serve Him.
Each one of us has a special part to play in this life. The light we shine for God is needed where God has placed each of us. As His children, we are to reflect His love to others where we are.
When we do this, we shine His light for everyone to see and draw others closer to Him.
Christ cannot light a single spark in the heart of an individual, without that little tiny spark being for God. He gives the light, and has ordained that every ray of it is to reflect something for God.
- G.V. Wigram
