Daily Bible Reading: Micah 6 – 7
Verse of the Day: Micah 6:8 – “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”
We are entering the Winter Solstice. Where I live the daylight hours are shorter than the night ones. As we approach Christmas Day, we are reminded that the darkness of night seems so large compared to the light around us in life. Yet, Jesus came into the world to bring Light – Life – and Loving mercy. When the Light appears, darkness cannot exist anymore.
Could it be that the reason the world around us seems so dark and dreary is that we have not been the reflectors of the Light that we should be? Consider whether you are just in ALL of your dealings. Think about how much mercy you really show to those around you. Moreover, can you honestly say that you walk in humility with God? Today, be the Light-reflector that God has called us to be.
Prayer: Father, let Your light shine through me to light up my darkened world. Amen.
