I don't know why I am typing this.....I just feel I should.
It is so so so important to remember who we represent every second of every minute of everyday.....God. God has called us to be the shining lights in the world of darkness that we live in. As Christians we must remember that we are constantly being watched by those who are looking and searching for something greater than they are. We must always remember that they are watching us to see how Christians act and behave. When we do completely wrong things as "Christians" they are completely repelled and even some believe that if "Christians" do it then it's "okay" for them to do it.
We aren't perfect. No one can be perfect all the time. We are going to make mistakes but the important realization that needs to occur is that we can fix our mistakes so they don't happen again. Whether other people see what you do when no one else is around doesn't matter.....HE sees what you do. And He has told us that one day we will account for those actions and decisions we made. God has given us a life to bless others and bring them to Him. Why waste it doing things that are not uplifting and pleasing to God? If you claim to be a Christian.....act like it......not half of the time but all of the time....
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." [Matthew 5:16]
