The Light of God

Isaiah 58: 9b-10

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, 10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,

then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.”

We want the world to be made in our image.   We get upset when things do not go our way, when people disagree with us or when things are not in proper order.  We want to blame someone, to point them out to others, to call them names.

But the prophet Isaiah says we should do away with such nonsense and focus on the needs of others.  When we yell, scream and point fingers, the darkness reigns, but when we live a life of service, the light of God shines forth into the darkness.

This dark world needs the light of God.  Let’s let it shine through us.

May the love of Christ be with you

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
