You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Do you ever feel you can’t let your light shine? Maybe you feel you don’t have any light to shine? I sure have, even as I write this blog or take care of patients.
Meet Nick Vujicic
Nick Vijicic felt that way and he probably has a reason to. Nick was born with amelia- absence of arms and legs. He wondered what he could possibly accomplish without limbs.
Reflecting on Matthew 5, Nick wrote in his devotional book
Limitless: Devotions for a Ridiculously Good Life
Nothing will bring you down faster than living without purpose or losing track of whatever you are most passionate about, the gift that gives you joy and makes your life meaningful.
Finding purpose took Nick from being a depressed suicidal teenager to a man who “travels the world on God’s business” and has a “ridiculously good life” with his wife and children. He tells this story in his book
Love Without Limits: A Remarkable Story of True Love Conquering All
When our focus becomes self centered instead of God centered, we lose our greatest source of power. Our God given talents are meant to benefit others.
I agree with Nick. I became a doctor and write this blog to use whatever skill and talent I have to help you. When I forget that purpose, both quickly become burdens instead of sources of joy and excitement.
Ask yourself these questions.
- What in life matters to me?
- What brings me joy?
- What drives me and gives my life meaning?
