Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

darkness needs your light

Darkness -absence of light – wickedness, evil, fear are all associated with darkness.
 
The world we find ourselves in certainly has an abundance of fear. Wickedness – the quality of being evil or morally wrong is also evident. You don’t have to look far to see ugliness and mean spirited people. Hatred breeds hatred.

As Christians we are called to be salt and light. (Matt 5:13-16)
 
“…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (verse 16)
 
We are called to be people of love.
 
“Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Cor 16:13 ESV
 
If you are going to hate something. Hate what is wrong. Hate injustice. When it comes to people, remember what Jesus said. Love your enemy. (Matt 5:43-44) If he is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. (Romans12:20)
 
Yes, we are called out of darkness. (1 Peter 2:9) We are called to love.
 
“Don’t just pretend that you love others: really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good.” Romans 12:9 TLB
 
They will know we are Christians by our love. (John 13:34-35)
