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.
One of the most important traits that a Christian can possess is meekness or humbleness. Mathew 5:5 states that “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Titus 3:2 – “to speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.” Proverbs 16:19 – “It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly than to divide the spoil with the proud.” James 4:6 -“God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
