The Light of the Morning

2 Samuel 23: 1a, 3-4

“ 1a: Now these are the last words of David:...3 The God of Israel has spoken, the Rock of Israel has said to me: One who rules over people justly, ruling in the fear of God, 4 is like the light of morning, like the sun rising on a cloudless morning, gleaming from the rain on the grassy land.”

I used to walk to the park early in the morning.  Some mornings the air would be fresh and clean and the sky would be cloudless, clear and blue.  The sun would be shining on the dew of the grass of the soccer field, and as I walked I could feel God’s peace.

Many people, including David, have had this same experience.  David said that people  who walk with God, who have within them the spirit of God, carry with them the light of morning.  Have you ever known a person like that, who, when they walk into a room, you can feel that the room is brighter, feels lighter, and more joyous?

Christians are called to be the morning light; the hope of the new day; the blue cloudless sky ….even in the ever darkening world.


May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
