“I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”
We all need to be abiding in the LORD, not the world. When we hang in the world we take on it’s negativity, hostility and darkness! We find ourselves making unnecessary comments, saying and doing mean things, walking in darkness.
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice truth.”
1 John 1:5-6
Today let us check ourselves before we say and do anything! Does what we say, message or think glorify God? Are our words and thoughts just snarky and negative?
“Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.”
As we go through our day let us walk in the light of the LORD, encouraging, edifying and comforting others, not tearing down, correcting or acting like we are somehow better than those around us! Ask yourself is it necessary to say, is it helpful, does it encourage and does it glorify the LORD? Have a blessed day!
