33 “People don’t light a lamp and then put it in a closet or under a basket. Rather, they place the lamp on a lampstand so that those who enter the house can see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is full of darkness. 35 Therefore, see to it that the light in you isn’t darkness. 36 If your whole body is full of light—with no part darkened—then it will be as full of light as when a lamp shines brightly on you.” (Luke 11:33-36, CEB)
I was struck as I read this, “Therefore, see to it that the light in you isn’t darkness.”
See that the light in you isn’t darkness.
How can light be darkness?
Any light dispels darkness. So I’m not sure how darkness is light or light is darkness.
I think what is meant is we need to focus on the light and living in a way that shows God’s light in our lives. Not because we have to but because we are so full of light we can not help it.
We need to help dispel the darkness by living out the light.
Let the light shine in your life that others see it and wonder how they can get that light.
Loving People. Loving God.
