Under a bowl

Sometimes I feel like the wimpiest of Christians. What am I really doing? Am I doing anything to help others? Am I leaving an indelible mark in anyone's life? Should I be? I see all these proactive Christians out there, changing the world for good and I look at myself and see a selfish life. I'm living in my own bubble, failing to recognize the needs of others and doing something about it. It seems like I'm not affecting anybody or anything.

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives light to everyone in the house, In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
- Matthew 5:13-16

Oh boy. What a long way to go.
