STOP AND THINK – We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light. (Plato, 4th-5th century B. C. philosopher)
A night light gave us a sense of security and safety when we were little and left alone in a dark bedroom. We were glad for the light then. But, do you remember when you first did something you knew your parents wouldn’t approve of? You did it hidden away somewhere, didn’t you? People prefer to do their evil deeds in the dark, strong evidence of their wrong.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. (John 3:19)
