Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
God promised a sifting between the righteous and unrighteous. Jesus repeated the same assurance in his parables.
For God's people, however, these are not fearful warnings. Instead, these are words of promise. Those who have wisely honored and lived for God, will shine brilliantly for all to see. Those who have led others to live righteously, will twinkle like stars in their Father's eyes!
Father God, thank you for saving me by your grace and kindness. I pray that I will always have the desire to lead others to righteousness. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
