Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father - Daily Bible Readings September 19, 2016

We should always be ready to do what is right. We should never hold back what is due to those in need. These are exhortations about right living in the court of a king. The Book of Proverbs is a collection of sayings on how to live successfully in the court of a king.
Proverbs 3:27-34
28 [27] Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim when it is in your power to do it for him. 29 [28] Say not to your neighbor, “Go, and come again, tomorrow I will give,” when you can give at once. 30 [29] Plot no evil against your neighbor, against one who lives at peace with you. 31 [30] Quarrel not with a man without cause, with one who has done you no harm. 32 [31] Envy not the lawless man and choose none of his ways: 33 [32] To the Lord the perverse one is an abomination, but with the upright is his friendship. 34 [33] The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but the dwelling of the just he blesses; 35 [34] when dealing with the arrogant, he is stern, but to the humble he shows kindness.
Psalm 15:2-3, 3-4, 5
R: The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
2 He who walks blamelessly and does justice; who thinks the truth in his heart 3 and slanders not with his tongue. (R) Who harms not his fellow man, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor; 4 by whom the reprobate is despised, while he honors those who fear the Lord. (R) 5 Who lends not his money at usury and accepts no bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be disturbed. (R)
We should be proud of everything we receive from God, especially the gift of salvation. The world may mock us but the future is bright for us who have submitted our lives to the Gospel. Jesus wants us to be fearless in sharing the Gospel with others. It is His responsibility to bring the promise of the Gospel to fruition. We merely have to proclaim it and let the Holy Spirit take over.
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
Luke 8:16-18
16 Jesus said to the crowd: “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. 18 Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”
think: We should always be ready to do what is right.
