Let Your Light Shine

Psalm 58:3-5 KJV The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. [4] Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; [5] Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
 
We live in a world of wickedness. But wickedness is nothing new. God declared that the thoughts and intents of man’s heart was only evil continually (Gen. 6:5). Later, God declares that our heart is wicked and deceitful (Jer. 17:9), So it should not surprise us that the world is wicked. Our responsibility in a wicked world is to shine as lights of righteousness. Our actions and lifestyle should be in stark contrast to the wickedness around us. Our words should express the Gospel and and actions should glorify God (Matt. 5:14-16).
