“There are twelve hours of daylight every day. During the day people can walk safely. They can see because they have the light of this world. But at night there is danger of stumbling because they have no light.” John 11:9-10
It is within our own power to destroy ourselves. We flirt with bad habits which are destructive. Our impulses thrust us into dangerous excursions which can end in disaster. Self preservation can be neglected. G. K. Chesterton when asked what was wrong with the world replied “I am”
Godlessness causes night in the soul. Death reigns within. The power of self-destruction has been freely utilized. Minus eternal light, we are destined to stumble, fall, and unable to find our way.
We have the power within us to live God’s way. To take the first step towards another way of living. But it’s a choice we have to make consciously and sincerely.
