so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
If we want to be the light of God with credibility, we must live by the standards God’s word lays out for our lives. Even when the world around us embraces evil, we are to stand firm in our faith and live clean, innocent lives. When others lie, we tell the truth. When others let greed rule their choices, we are generous. This is how we shine for Jesus, in our broken world.
