Today's Scripture: "Jesus answered, 'Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.'" Jn 11:9

The timing was right, the weather cooperated and our daughter's wedding went off without a major hitch. One of the concerns of my wife and I was having the ceremony outside and guests having to traverse a winding gravel driveway to get to the ceremony. Once there, they had to walk back to reach the banquet hall for the reception. But that was a minor concern compared to it not raining and having enough light to see the ground you're walking on.
In the same way, the recent solar eclipse reminded those of us who saw it of the sun's importance. For a few minutes it got chilly and dark in the middle of a warm day, just to see it shortly return to full light. This is eerily similar to sin turning things dark and using people to hurt others. Then, it's followed by the light of kindness and compassion of some to help the hurting. But we, the children of Light, don't need the darkness to reflect the Light on someone else. We are walking mirrors of God's glory to lighten shadows and offer Light to darkened souls.
Help me reflect Your glory today, Jesus, and expose the darkness.
