Why shine your light?

So let your light shine before others.  Are you full of light as you lead?  What is so important about letting that light shine?  Matthew 5:16 answers that question.  “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.”  

The most dangerous and difficult thing about successful leadership is learning how to avoid the glory.   Once we begin to accept the glory for successful leadership , failure of our leadership is imminent.  Pride feeds itself on stolen glory.

Let your light shine!  What does this look like?  “Our light” is the gift of salvation and a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  This gift if accepted and embraced will be the foundation of all that we do and say.  It will be our greatest desire to share with others why we do our “good works”.  We don’t do these works to gain anything,  we do these works because of what we have already been given.  

In all that we do,  for all those we lead,  shine your light so that the glory will be given to God.
