Baptism Bible Verse

This week our Bible verse has a very personal meaning. It is the verse that was used at the end of each of our children's baptism ceremonies.

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

We are sharing this verse with our children this week because we feel that it is important for them to know that all of their talents come from God, and when they do something "good" it is for God's glory and not their own. This is a hard thing to understand when you are 5 and 9, but one day I know it will sink in. Every year on the anniversary of their baptism we light the candle given to them on this special day and say our special Bible verse.

As I was thinking about the verse I was also remembering their baptisms and what joyous times they were!
