There once was a man, his name John, sent by God to point out the way to the Life-Light. He came to show everyone where to look, who to believe in. John was not himself the Light; he was there to show the way to the Light.
John 1:6-9 (The Message)
I now understand why so many parents have named their child John.
Simply put: I want to raise children who show the way to the light. Who “show everyone where to look”.
What points me to the Life-Light today?
My children’s smiles (cliché but true). Made in God’s image, he is no more clear than there.
The geese still flying south, made to instinctively know it’s time to move and where to move to.
Couples who marry young and years later find each other attractive with receding hair lines and age spots and extra pounds. Nothing points to purer love that soul-to-soul attraction.
And the evergreen wreath with the Advent candles. Chosen because it speaks of God’s unchanging nature, that evergreen that does not change with the seasons.
What points out the way to the Life-Light for you today?
