Shine!

I'm sure you've heard this before, but I've always liked it:

A woman was asked by a co-worker, "What is it like to be a Christian?" She replied,

"It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then he cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."


You are the light of the world. . . Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

Cool! I had never read that before, and think it will help at our church's Fall Festival tonight, especially with the children! What an easy way to explain salvation to everyone! Thanks for posting it for us.

PinkGirl came home with this story this week. I LOVE her 2nd grade teacher! In a Christian school where, more often than not, Halloween is about evil instead of costumes and candy, this teacher is GREAT.
