I decided to take a brisk walk/run early this morning. It was dark when I stepped outside my building, except for one bright tree. It was beautiful. It stood out amidst the darkness because of its light. I got close to it and saw that a tall light was in the center of the tree causing the illumination. All around it was nothing but darkness. The tree was never tempted to join the darkness. It didn’t want to be like the crowd. If so, it would lose its distinction of bringing beauty and light.

Are we being light in this dark world full of sin, despair and deceit? May our distinctive be the sweet aroma of Christ, seeing all of life from His perspective and responding in love and grace.
