When I am Most Unbecoming

Just thinking ... 

The times I've been most unbecoming are when I wasn't becoming more like Jesus. 

Life really boils down to focus, doesn't it? 

Am I focusing on myself and how I can be a "star" in life, or am I looking to the One who created the stars and discovering how He might want to change me?

The "light" we are to shine (Matthew 5:16) isn't OUR light ... it's His. Maybe when we shine our own little lights, the world can't see "the light of the world," Jesus (John 8:12).

And that's sad, because when we are focusing on lighting up ourselves, the world won't see their need of the Lord, and they won't see His glory in us.

Just thinking ...
