We are called to be a light in the dark. There are many creep sinful things in the dark that come to us also, to bug us, to tempt us. Rather then fall into the temptation sin is offering, we must kill it with prayer, like bugs attracted to the light in a dark place, we must always be on guard against these sinful “bugs”. We must zap the sin that comes to us always, out of our life and the lives of those who need our Lords help and protection. As we are effected by the sins of those around us, we are also influencing souls through the grace our Lord gives to us to live holy lives, by our example. We need to ensure the sin dies and falls to the earth, allowing the good to rise and thrive. Ever seen how green grass grows under an area that a bug light is hanging over? That death of sinful nature gives bountiful life.
Think about it…
From this mornings prayers, Divine Office:
God our Savior,
hear our morning prayer:
help us to follow the light
and live the truth.
In you we have been born again
as sons and daughters of light:
may we be your witnesses before all the world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
