"I planted the seed, Apollos watered it,
but God has been making it grow.

So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything,
but only God, who makes things grow.
The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose,
and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.
For we are co-workers in God’s service;
you are God’s field, God’s building”.
1 Corinthians 3:6-9

You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, 
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.  
Matthew 5: 14-16
