What a lovely picture the Father has given us of the difference between the right way and the wrong way. The path for those who follow Jesus is filled with light. You can see where to place your feet. You know where to turn. You witness the beauty around you. You can rest.
But the way for those who choose a wicked lifestyle is darkness. And this is not just what it looks like when you turn out the light. This is a darkness that is felt. It permeates their world and causes them to fall.
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
I have to ask, why would anyone choose darkness over light?
Jesus, You came as the light of the world. You want to flood our path with Your brightness, warmth, direction. Thank You, that receiving You brings light into all of the dark places in my life.
