Daily Readings — The Moon and the Sun!

Day 2053: Happy Saturday!

Scripture: This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all. I John 1:5     (Jesus speaking) – “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

Thoughts/questions: Friday I was up and about early observing a setting full moon and the rising sun – beautiful! These two are directly related as the sun’s light gives rise to the moon’s light, as the moon has no light of its own!

God’s obviously the sun and we are the moon in this analogy. So just what does this moon due to earn the ability to have light? Nothing! Not having the ability to create light itself, it merely reflects the awesome light of the sun!

How’s your spiritual light shining? Are you at peace and reflecting the light of Jesus? Or are you feeling obligated and overwhelmed as you try to ‘please’ God by doing, doing, and doing some more?

Not only are we to ‘Be still and know that He is God‘, but also we are to – be still and let His light reflect off us!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, may I not try to be a light, but may I always reflect Your light . . .
