There are some things that are to be hidden and others that are to be shown to others. “Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matt. 5: 15-16). Yeshua said this in the context of saying that believers are the salt and light of the world. Salt is a preserving agent and light illuminates all upon which it shines. Our good deeds are to bring glory to the Father in heaven.
