For so many of us, this week feels dangerous. People are getting ready, which means different things to different folks.
Some are going to guard the gates.
And some are going to shepherd others to safety until the storm passes.
We all have a call to justice. But we have to listen to the way of the call. For me, even though my gift is words and my weapon is sarcasm, I am not being called to raise my voice in anger. I am holding fast to truth, to seeking it and speaking it with compassion and kindness.
Whether we go to guard the gates or shepherd others to safety, let us make sure we bring our Light.
Otherwise, we just become part of the darkness.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
