Let Your Light Shine!

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard.

Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right

thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light

by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in

frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her

cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up

into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to

exit her car with her hands up.

He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted,

photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a

policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the

booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal


He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind

your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of

you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do'

bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life'license plate holder, the'Follow Me to

Sunday-School'bumper sticker, and thechrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the

trunk; naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car .''

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

-Matthew 5:16

Dear Lord we pray that our life would show your love in all we say and do. We pray that we won’t say or act in a manor that would make those around us question whether or not we are a Christian. In Jesus Name, Amen
