Gotta LOVE the Message version
Matthew 5:16The Message (MSG)
14-16 “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—shine! 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.
So, how do I begin to tell this story.
I was obese, it made me ASHAMED and my light DIMMED. That obesity kept me from shining! I was always tired, too tired to shine! I was always hungry, too preoccupied to shine!
I withdrew and withdrew and withdrew into my food and pain...
There was NO shining...
I know a lot of christians just like me...
