GOD IS LIGHT
The Scriptures (1 John 1, 2) state that God is light and that in him there is no darkness. Anyone who claims to be part of the family of God must reflect God's light. God's light is most powerfully reflected when we engage in thinking thoughts that are truthful, kind, peaceful, pure, loving, excellent, and praiseworthy. Thoughts that fail to reflect God's light and instead generate darkness include thoughts of hate, revenge, unforgiveness, anger, envy and greed. Words also can reflect or fail to reflect God's light depending on whether they are positive words of peace and love, or words of hate, anger, slander and unforgiveness. God's light also is most powerfully reflected when we engage in acts of love, kindness, and compassion, and when we do to others only what we would want done to us. When we do the opposite of these things, the darkness grows and becomes all-consuming. The darkness in our world will continue to grow until each of us begins to see ourselves, and our every thought, word and action, as either contributing to the powerful reflection of God's light in our world, or contributing to the growing darkness. We cannot blame others for the condition of our world. We first must take the plank of guilt out of our eyes before we can see clearly enough to fix others.
