1. POST SCRIPTURE THAT WAS RELEVANT TO YOU TODAY
As you read Scripture and God speaks to you, take the time to share that with others.

I realize that there are many different ways that you can let you light shine brightly. Why not let your interaction with others on social media be one of them?
Are there ways that you use social media to minister to others? Keep the conversation going. Please leave your response in the comments section and share your ideas with others!
