Observations on the Sunrise
I’ve got the bug. I wake up early usually. That means I’m not deterred by early morning flights. And it works out that when I get those flights, well, I drive right into the sunrise.
I’m surprised that the light does not conserve. It does not hold back. It does not save itself for a rainy day. The sun just does what it is naturally called to do: provide light to the darkness. Certainly, there are days when the clouds try to obscure, but that’s all the clouds can do. They cannot prevent. The light is always there.
Jesus said that He was the light of the world. We are in His image. Like the sun, it seems we are called to illuminate, to light up His creation, to make it more beautiful and His name more renowned. We are to not hold back, but just to “be”—to be filled with the light which only He gives. And in so doing, we help drive the darkness away.
