We live in uncertain times: many would say that today, a new ‘dark age’ has befallen much of the world. War, pollution, disease…there is so much darkness that it can be easy to not notice the light.
However, is today any darker than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah? Did the light of salvation not shine divinely now as it did at that time?
It was not God changing how brightly the light shined, no. It was the inhabitants that chose to ignore and be blind to it.
Today, there are challenges to ones faith everywhere, just as it was with Lot: sex, drugs, violence…any type of sin that you can imagine seems to be commonplace in the society that we are currently living.
There are times I wonder whether it is responsible to have a child in today’s era, forgetting how the light of the Lord never ceases to shine. The choice is mine. The choice is yours.
For those who are fortunate enough to know and have chosen to accept Christ, we may consider ourselves chosen by God. We have a responsibility to shine forth in the darkness, as a new nation of light, not limited by geography and distance, but instead brought together by faith.
