“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good workes, and glorifie your father which is in heauen.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
5:16 That they may see - and glorify - That is, that seeing your good works, they may be moved to love and serve God likewise.
Mt 5:16 Let your light so shine. Like the city set on a hill, or the lighted lamp on a stand. We are told, (1) To let our light shine. (2) Before men. (3) By good works. (4) That they may glorify the Father in heaven. Christ is the Light; we will shine reflected light if we walk in his light. If we give forth light it will honor God.
