Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. - Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)
Sometimes we see the evil in this world and wonder how a loving God could let it go unchecked.
I think perhaps we should be asking a different question. Aren’t goodness, love, and care evidence of the presence of God in our midst?
I experienced God’s goodness firsthand when recovering...
How can I show God’s goodness and love to someone today?

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
