During this season holiday lights brighten up our surroundings. As we see the lights, why not take a moment to contemplate what having light in the darkness really means?
Take a moment to turn off your lights – all of them (including smart phones, iPads, laptops and anything that glows.) Then turn on one light and see what a difference it makes.
Illumination. Light illuminates.
It also shows what’s smudged. Advent is a good time to empty out internal closets cluttered with fears that dilute the Light.
Advent is about letting the Light of Christ in – and out.
Light of Christ illuminate us … that we may be Your light in the night of this world.
“Arise and shine for the Light of the world is come…” Isaiah 60:1
