September to Remember

Check! It’s Finished!

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

As a new church plant, we had the opportunity to begin an LWML group. What shall we name it? We decided on WinGS — Women in God’s Service.

Does a family need a funeral meal? “Check.” Should cards be mailed or a prayer shawl delivered to a shut in? “Done!” Shall we collect for the food bank? “I’ll bring boxes.” Who is on this month’s altar committee? “It’s finished.” Who has snacks for the midweek service? “Already signed up!”

At each turn and every situation, this WinGS group inspires me. They lift each other up. They encourage others. They are welcoming. They are enthusiastic. They “let their lights shine” through their kindness, service, and care for others. Oh, that we could all be like them as they give wholeheartedly, reflecting God’s love to their church and community!

God’s blessings as you let your light shine!
