“Let your light shine before me, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven,”
Are you the first Christian in your family? That can be tough. If you’re the only one going to church, the only one who cares at all about how God wants you to live, you may feel pretty lonely at times. You could feel kind of like your faith is always on display because your family knows the real you and sees you at your worst as well as at your best. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you mess up it’s impossible to live perfectly.
Remember to let your light shine as much as possible, sometimes through kindness and generosity and sometimes through the strength to apologize for messing up. That way, your family will see. God in you.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for understanding me and always having me as your child. I pray for courage to always be strong in my faith and in you. Amen.
