During the “Sermon on the Mount,” Jesus told His followers to

“… let your light shine before men in such a way that they will see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Later in that same sermon He tells his followers to

“Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them ….” Matthew 6:1


An apparent contradiction comes from misunderstanding what Jesus meant about letting “your light shine before men ….”
