Day 10 - Contrast
The contrast between right and wrong, good and evil, or love and hate can be difficult to perceive in the moment but are proven over time by what they produce. However, the distinction between light and dark is immediately recognized by what is revealed. The longer we keep our hurts, habits and hang-ups in the dark the more painful the process can be when the light is revealed, as the light can become momentarily painful when we have adjusted to dwelling in the dark. Jesus is the light that has come into the world and as we walk in the light with him, we become less fearful and more confident recognizing this light has come to reveal, heal, and redeem, not humiliate, criticize or reject.
How many beautiful details of your life remain muted and hidden in shadows cast by fear or shame?
