Matthew 5:16

16 In the same way, let your light shine [a] before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:16 In-Context

14 "You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house.
16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
17 "Don't assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
18 For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished.
