You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  – Matthew 5:14-16

Make it personal

Have you ever felt like hiding your faith from others? If you can share an experience.

Have you ever been with a group of friends who were doing something sinful?  What did you do? What would you have done differently?

Is there anyone in your life that you find it difficult to live out your faith around? Why?

If you can, share a time when felt you were a light to someone.  What did you do? How did it feel?
