Tips for Being “God’s Light” In Your Community

Being a positive influence on your community is a great thing to read about and discuss, but when it comes to actually living out being an influence…it can seem like a bit of a daunting task. Where do you even start? Who should you be trying to influence? What if you don’t feel like you have anyone to influence?

We wanted to give you some inspiration to get started on your positive influence in your community with some tips for work, home, and church. What tips would you add?

Influencing at church

Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop? And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”

matthew 5:14-16

Wherever you are and whomever you’re with, you are an influence. Live your life powered by the light of God and His word and your community will be better because of you.
