“This is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light.”

Standard

 

Why would we choose darkness? Because we have something to hide? We all have something to hide. Light exposes every wrinkle, every blemish, every imperfection, our flawed, secret self.

Ask yourself, could I stand naked in front of a room full of people, not strangers, people I interact with? The answer for most of us is no. Then think, could I be entirely naked before someone I love and who I know loves me, just as I am warts and all?

This is the secret of embracing the light. Knowing  God loves us with such perfect love He sees past our imperfections, we can yield ourselves in total, naked, honesty. Not because we feel we are perfect or beautiful, but because we trust totally in His limitless love for us. This is true humility and only in this way can we embrace the light.

    • I don’t agree, though familiar with this concept. To my mind darkness is the absense of light, not it’s conterpart. However, thanks so much for dropping by and taking time to comment. We all see things differently, but taking time to communicate is always precious. Love and greetings!

      • By two sides of coin was meant that when one side is brought infront of a light object the other side there would be darkness. On the other hand it is universal that absence of light is darkness.
