The Kinkaku-ji temple also known as Golden Pavillion in Kyoto is a beauty to behold. What usually captivates tourists is the the two upper stories which are covered with pure gold leaf. But I noticed that what makes it even more beautiful is when the sun shines on it. It reflects a golden light that would make you stand in awe. I realized, we can be like the Kinkaku-ji; what makes us truly beautiful is when the light of the Son shines upon us, and we radiate that light to those who are around us. The light of Jesus is what we should strive for others to see in us. Our life should always point to the source of light. 

“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” –Matthew 5:16
