The highlight of one particular day was meeting a young man who was a sales associate where my son was shopping. His name is Evan, and you could just tell there was something different about him. He was kind and attentive, not in a schmoozy “let me sell you something” way, but sincere and honest.
Matthew 5:16 says, “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Evan’s light shines.
I know that it’s tough living for Christ in a hostile world. I’ve seen the persecution that often accompanies taking a stand, but I thank God for people who do…especially those who are just coming into adulthood.
They are standing at the jumping off point, and their actions early on will influence the rest of their lives.
