Let Your Light Shine

Matthew 5 16

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Let your light shine by doing good deeds so that others will be led to glorify God. There are so many people in need of help right in your very own community. Volunteering your time at homeless shelters, food banks or at some other nonprofit organization that has a place in your heart will help people experience the love and goodness of God. When you love God with all your heart you can’t help but feel compassion for the poor and needy just like Jesus did. Let God’s love shine through you because faith without works is dead.

Compassion

Psalm 72 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 72:13

He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save.

 

The Lord has compassion on the weak and needy. We must also have a heart of compassion for those in need. If there’s a specific issue that touches your heart, take the next step and make a donation or volunteer your time to an organization that addresses those needs. Let God guide you in how you can be of service.

God Works Through You

Matthew 25 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 25:35

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

 

By showing compassion and kindness to those in need you’re sharing God’s love and mercy.  Let everything you do be done as if you are doing it for the Lord. Let God work through you to fill the needs of His people. Don’t wait for someone else to do what God has called you to do.

Love and Good Deeds

Hebrews 10 24.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love with others.  Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified.  We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone because if we don’t then who will?

Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need.  Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Visit the sick, feed the hungry, help others to know God. These kinds of things make a real difference. Give, serve, love, these are the kinds of sacrifices that please God.

Faith Inspires Action

James 2 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  James 2:14

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?

 

Faith is a verb; it requires action on our part. Faith in God prompts us to do something, it moves us to share the love of God not only by word but also by deed with those in need. (for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:13)

Kindness and Charity

Matthew 25 40

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 25:40

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

 

Practice acts of kindness and charity not because of who they are but because of who you are, a child of God.  Share God’s goodness with those in need.  Do what you can as often as you can for as many as you can.
