Shatter the darkness
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! - ISAIAH 5:20
The Louvre Museum in Paris is surrounded by a beautiful garden that is magnificent in appearance. But if you look closely, you will see tiny animals running all throughout the garden grounds. Rats! That’s right! The Louvre garden is infested with rats. Convinced it would be inhumane to kill them, officials now put up with them as part of the “landscape”.
There are a lot of “rats” running around in this world that we ignore, tolerate or even make into pets! We need to seek God’s help and strength to stand in humility as Christians and confront the evils which are now interpreted as good in our culture and world. The best place to begin is to bring light into the darkness. And by the way, bright intense light also deters rats. So, let your life reflect the brightest of all lights, the Light of the world, Jesus Christ. Not only will you help shatter the darkness, you will help scatter the rats!
