Children of Light


We have all heard at one time or another, “Come on, it’ll be fun!”  That short sentence has been the key to unlocking numerous doors of trouble for most of us. Going to the “party” we know we should never go to. Taking the first drink of alcohol, holding in the first drag, watching pornography, or getting involved in physical intimacy with someone we are not married to. Most of us do not wake up one day and decide to be completely self-destructive. We have an abundance of help most of the time. Solomon wrote to his son, “When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you, to deliver you from the way of evil, from the man who speaks perverse things, from those who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness…” (Proverbs 2:10–13) 

We are all either children of the darkness or children of the light and those with whom we keep company influence us greatly. One example could be if we are around negative folks, their sway will start to diminish the brightness of our joy as it becomes tarnished by their bitterness and hatred. When we are in need of wisdom to know when we are keeping bad company, we can simply ask God for it. James wrote, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5) When we are desperate for knowledge of what is right and what is wrong, we start with a true fear of the Lord God Almighty. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)
