Living In The Light

The apostle John wrote these words to believers as a message of encouragement – anyone who loves their brother & sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. By contrast, he equated hating people with roaming around in darkness. Hatred is disorienting; it takes away our sense of moral direction.

Loving people is not always easy. Yet I was reminded as I looked out the window that frustration, forgiveness and faithfulness are all part of maintaining a deep connection with the love and light of God. When we choose love instead of hate, we are showing our relationship with Him and reflecting His radiance to the world around us. God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.
