Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. God is like the sun, bathing me with light. The more I reflect God, by showing kindness to a difficult person or even by having patience in a checkout line, the more I become the person God created me to be. We have no glory of our own, only such as is reflected from the light of Christ that shines upon us.
