But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know over what they stumble.
There are two ways, two paths in life.
One is bright and gets even brighter still. As time passes, the brightness and the light shines ever more and in greater intensity. This is the way of the righteous person. This is the way of the Lord.
The other is the way of the wicked. It is shrouded in darkness and that darkness causes people to lose their bearings, and dull their senses as to what is around them. The way of darkness causes people who walk in it to become completed blinded and unaware of their true condition, and to stumble and fall.
Too often we complicate life. We love to debate various shades of grey. We love to look for loopholes and ways around what God has said. We love to justify why it can’t be “that simple”.
But God says there are two ways. The way of light – the way of the righteous. And the way of darkness – the way of the wicked.
A person of faith understands to take this simple truth, to believe it, to discern what is light and what is darkness and to choose the light.
PRAYER: Father, I choose to walk in the light, your light. Reveal darkness in my life. Show me that I may repent of it. Illuminate my way. In Jesus name, Amen
