"the reluctance... to stretch just a little bit more in the service, instead of being too slow to see the power of their example or too shy about letting their light shine." -Let Us Move Forward and Upward
Why are we reluctant? Why are we shy? Why are we slow to see the power of our examples?
We can do more.
Let us heed the words of the Lord given to an ancient prophet; 14) Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15) Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
I know that we are indeed the "light of the world". Let us not hide. The Lord will work through us as we work for Him. I know this. I have seen this come true in my own very life. So, my advise for you and I is the same I give to the new and incoming missionaries, let your light shine!
