“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” …………………Martin Luther King, Jr.
When we are in the dark….with no light at all we feel disoriented. We need light coming from somewhere to give us balance and perception. We need the light. We need it to survive. Without light plants will not grow. The earth would be barren.
Just as much as we need light we need love. We need someone to hold up the mirror of love and show us our goodness. Without that we are barren.
God is willing to hold that mirror for us and let his light shine through us. Love and light give us life.
Amazing God, your grace has given us what we need to live as you call us to. Help us to remember that. AMEN
