Don’t let darkness blind you. I always thought that too much light can blind someone, but apparently darkness will do that to you as well. And then we don’t know where we are going, or what we are doing, and what is the purpose of life. We are blind to everything, to the beauty all around us, to the sin that lives in us, to the people that live around us, we only think about ourselves. Which makes our world narrow and confusing. Nothing can flourish in the darkness, not flowers, not birds. Everything needs light to function properly. To live we need the sun, the warmth, the healing power of God. I was wondering what if we are partly in the light and partly in the darkness, can we function like that? Well I don’t know… but I am sure God does know. And I sure hope we are not deceiving ourselves.
God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.
