Ok good! Me too!!!
And it got me thinking... if we are all gold - which we are - don't believe me?
Isaiah 13:12 ~ "I will make a man more precious than fine gold"
Ok- so I lied, we are more precious than gold!
So, why do we tarnish ourselves?
You wouldn't dare ruin a fine piece of gold, so why de-value yourselves?
There are many different ways to tarnish, it's different for everyone...
the list could go on and on... but let's not dwell on how to tarnish...
Let's focus on how to make ourselves SHINE!
Matthew 5:16 ~ "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven."
1 John 1:7 ~ "But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin"
-Sin no more. Whatever is tarnishing you of your gold - get rid of it! Do what it takes to own up to that vice and begin the road to gold!
John 12:36 ~ "While you have the light, believe in the light that you may become sons of the light"
-Another way to shine? Believe. Believe in Jesus, His promises, His love, and your future in Him. How can you not shine when you live in Him?!
After all... He is the light of the world!
So what are you waiting for?!
