matthew 5:14



Is your light hidden or set high for all to see?

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

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.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

-Matthew 5:13-16

Hi Marsha

As a child I used to remember always singing that hymn Jesus wants me for a sunbeam - somedays to be honest I let those dark clouds blurr out that sunbeam. What a great reminder for us to let our light shine in this dark world. That's a fabulous night time cityscape scene aswell.

Wonderful photo!
I often think cities look better at night when the lights are pretty.
Great verse too - we must let the world see the light of Christ in us :-)
blessings..Trish

What a beautiful shot, Marsha. It goes wonderfully with your scripture verse.

Diana said...

Awesome shot...I was just meditating on that scripture this week, how to be more intentional as a light to the small circle of people I see daily. May You be richly blessed this week!

Susan said...

Yes, we are that light!! I shared that with a friend yesterday.

What a vivid picture for this verse! It can be a challenge to be that light, but I pray that we will all shine like your city on a hill.

Oooh I LOVE that! I chose that verse as the name of my blog (City On A Hill) I hope one day I can take a pretty photo like that to put on it. You are a very talented photographer.
