Grandstanding as Christians

Matthew 5:16 (NASB) 
“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Michael was on my softball team as a child. He seemed to love to grandstand a play. He would be in the outfield and jump for a waist-high catch. It may have looked good to those in the grandstands, but all the team knew it was an easy catch.

Some times as Christians we may present to the world that being a Christian is harder to do than reality. Maybe we think that will impress them. However, reality is that Jesus does all the hard stuff through us. Our job is to make sure He gets the credit.
