Good Vibrations

City on a Hill | Matthew 5:14-16

Next, we head to Matthew 5:14-16. Matthew records the Sermon on the Mount, where Jesus taught His followers what it looks like to live as part of God’s Kingdom. Jesus says we are like light in the darkness and salt to flavor food. We’re a city on a hill that points others to God. God gave us so much through Jesus. We can show others what God is like with how we act.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Bottom Line

Show God’s goodness to others.

When we understand that God has been so good to us through Jesus, we can’t help but show that same goodness to others. From being kind to helping others, we hope kids develop some great ideas to point others to Jesus with their actions.

Message to Parents

It’s would be easy to rattle off the things you don’t want your kids to overhear you and your husband talking about. Whether it’s your imitate life or frustrations with family members, there is plenty their little ears don’t need to hear. But have you considered there are things you should want your kids to overhear? Think about it—marriage is usually the first relationship being modeled for kids. This is why we love when our kids overhear us enjoying each other’s company. We’re modeling a healthy and fun friendship through marriage, and we hope they seek the same when they grow up.
