Light isn’t a function of rationality. You don’t think up light. You behold it.
Pride blocks inner light. It can’t see what things really look like.
We want to convince people we’re right, but what we all need is more light. At night, with little light, it makes no sense to fight about what you think you see.
Darkness can’t hide a light. In fact, it makes a light more noticeable. Light shines away darkness, making it disappear. Love shines away hate.
Everything’s unclear in a dimly lit room. Agreement requires more light, not more fight. You can’t force people to see. Seeing requires light, not might. Be a light! To turn off the light is to turn on the dark.
Sunrise A single ray of light, A tiny beam of bright, Can end the darkness night.
Humans are designed to live in light and love. Our lives don’t work in darkness and hate. When we don’t see, then we need kindness and light, not anger and harshness.
We all have an inner dimmer. We can brighten the light of our conscience or dim it. The invisible light of inner inspiration is an amazing sight to see! The human conscience is inner light. When it goes out, darkness settles in.
Often people see things differently because their lighting is different. When people disagree, perhaps they both need to adjust their lighting. You’re arguments won’t make people see more than their lighting allows them to.
You can’t have great vision with inadequate lighting (with a dimmed conscience). Perhaps more people are afraid of light than are afraid of the dark.
To be right, you need light. If you want to control people, darkness works. Trying to control people is frustrating. Showing them love and kindness is liberating.
If you’re living in the shadows, you can’t reflect the light, no matter how you try. A crack in your argument means fresh light can come in (unless you patch it up).
The Pharisees thought they were morally right, but they fought Jesus and His light. Jesus proved that inspiration’s much more powerful than coercion. Inspire people, don’t argue with them.
Social media: People in a dark room arguing about what they think they see. Being content no matter what happens is easier than trying to make things go your way.
Too often church is just a gathering of observers, watching a man’s religious talk. If you don’t talk about your own experiences with Jesus, you rob people of light. When Christians gather around the risen Jesus (instead of a preacher or program) light shines and miracles happen.
