Stopping To Think

Sometimes you read a post that just makes you stop and really think. That happened today while reading Brett Roger's wonderful, "Opinion Paper". He has some thoughts on the WWJD phenomena.

Interesting perspective. I think I agree with most of it. The only thing I would challenge is that works *are* supposed to flow from faith. So maybe the question would better be phrased: "What does Jesus require of me (in this situation)?"

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)

That verse seems to equate your "light" with your "works". The point being that the goal of works is not to receive praise, but to see to it that the Father receives praise. Big difference.
