“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—
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.
Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message)
