I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars. (Og Mandino, American author)

Light was an early part of God’s creation (Genesis 1), and it is difficult to imagine what life would be like without it. In reality, there probably could not be life without light. Just think about that! But the contrast of darkness makes us appreciate light even more. As Mandino suggests, it often gives us an even greater perspective on its importance.

The life of the godly is full of light and joy (Proverbs 13:9. Wisdom is better than foolishness, just as light is better than darkness (Ecclesiastes 2:18).
