"Reflectors"

"Reflectors"

BY PASTOR DENNIS MORALES

“Let your light so shine...."  (Matthew 5:16)

The moon at night can offer beautiful displays of light, but it's source of light comes directly from the sun. Realistically, if there was no sun, it would be nothing but a dirty rock. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus shares the very well known "Be"-atitudes." What Jesus teaches certainly isn't about "world peace," it's directed toward our character. The religious leaders in Jesus' day were so concerned with the minute details of conduct that they missed the major issue of character. Character goes much deeper than the surface. The way we live our lives flows from our character. A great preacher once said "Character is who you are when no one is looking." How is your behavior when no one is around? If your character is weak, then you will fall to destructive behavior. If your character is strong, then you will be able to withstand difficult pressures and temptation. What is good character? The bible identifies godly character as one that reflects love, joy, peace, kindness, patience, gentleness, goodness, and self control (Galatians 5:22-23). Do we perfectly reflect this at all times? Not realistically, but influences you have in your life will be reflected by you. The closer you draw to Jesus, the more His life will be reflected in you. Our children need good influence in their lives. We are called to influence character in our children's lives as parents and teachers. Draw close to the source and let your light shine!
