STOP AND THINK – Often the biggest thing blocking the light is our own shadow. (Ken Duncan, Australian professional photographer)

Duncan was undoubtedly thinking of shadow and light as it relates to taking pictures. Most of us, at one time or another, have ruined our photos when our own shadow blocked the light on the subject. That’s a good analogy of what life is like sometimes. There can be so much of ourselves in a situation that we fail to see the light.

I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment (Romans 12:3).
