Darkness and Light!


"Therefore do not be partners with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord." Ephesians 5:7-10

Tim Kight, said, "The contrast in this passage is between light and darkness. Light in scripture refers to truth and righteousness. Darkness refers to falsehood and evil. To live as children of light means to be directed by what is good and right and true."

It seems today, people are telling us "Things we know to be bad are good, and things we know to be good are bad."

Maybe before we believe what we are being told, we would be smart to read God's word and confirm what He says is good and what He says is bad before we go off following those who may not be following Christ. 

This reminds me of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, telling Adam and Eve what was bad was good and what was good was bad.

We can not allow others to put us down into their rabbit holes.

"Lord, give us discernment in what we hear from others; courage to stand with you, and protection from being led astray."Susan Reichert
