We can all talk about the things we don’t like about ourselves easily enough. We are quick to identify those traits. Our good qualities on the other hand, we tend to skip over those or not see them at all.
Matthew 5:14 NLT
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”
We are filled with the light of Jesus and that light shines bright. We are not supposed to hide our gifts under a basket, so we should know what our gifts and good traits are so that we can be that shining light. We all have strengths and characteristics that are wonderful and are a gift to those around us. Who we are is filled with so many more valuable assets than we give ourselves credit for. Think about it. Talk it over with God. When we begin to search outside of the box that we keep ourselves in, we will be surprised at how very many amazing ways we contribute to the beauty of the world around us. God makes good stuff, and that includes us. Let our lights shine!
