Let your light shine.

I've been having a little stained glass window fun.

In the same way LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Mattew 5:16

When reading this verse I kept thinking of a stained glass window, high up in a beautiful church somewhere. It's real beauty can't be seen unless the light is able to shine through and the light can't shine through unless it's clean and free from dust and dirt. How beautiful it looks when the light shines and the colours dance and the room is transformed with it's beauty.

In the same way, our lives should be free from the dust and dirt of sin and the room should be transformed with the beauty of God that shines from within us.

I used tinfoil, transparencies and glass paint to make my layout shine. Instructions on how to do this yourself can be found here.
