Some are tacky, some are cool, but we gaze at them all, ah yes, it’s that time of the season for Christmas lights. I can’t help but think of Clark Griswold.
Bringing hope to sufferring, healing to hurts, and light into darkness, is a central theme for biblical writers in proclaiming Christ’s birth and the “why” of why Jesus came.
78 Because of our God’s deep compassion,
the dawn from heaven will break upon us,
79 to give light to those who are sitting in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide us on the path of peace.” – Luke 1 (CEB)
What came into being
4 through the Word (Jesus) was life,
and the life was the light for all people.
5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light. – John 1 (CEB)
Seems timely still with all of the darkness in the news lately.
Let’s share that light. Post a picture of your favorite Christmas lights, or your Christmas tree with lights!
