Being afraid of the dark is a common fear some of us have had or may still have. The things that go bump in the night and the shadows on the walls will rob us of a good night’s sleep. The darkness of the world is similar in the fact that it robs us of our peace of mind. It tells us there is no end, that there is no happiness, and that there is no peace. Christ is the light in this darkness and when we cling to him, we will find eternal life, peace and contentment.
1. What darkness in your world is robbing you of peace?
2. What steps can you take to either focus on the Light in your life or being a light for someone else?
Challenge: Pick one individual in your life and figure out one way to be a light for them (i.e. take them a meal, have coffee with them, or do something nice for them).
