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.
He sets His children in public places so that as we walk with Him, and in Him, others can clearly see our lives and be convicted to glorify God. We live primarily and fundamentally to bring glory to God. It is our purpose. We are even publicly placed in the view of all in order to glorify Father God.
The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God. Habakkuk 2:14
