Open house

Matthew 5: 14

"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven."

The Message

Needless to say; I like this

Read your last 3 posts in one go.
Love the Sting verse with the bottles. And love the message version of Matt 5:14. So fits in with what I have been blogging on FB link about Avatar.
Will be holding you guys up in prayer again this summer
