Step outside and view the vastness of the night sky.
The dark curtain is speckled with hundreds of points of light.
We may say that darkness prevails, but that is not true.
The darkness is invaded and pierced by the light of the stars.
The darkness cannot overcome the light. If the darkness deepens, the light becomes more brilliant. All attention is drawn to the light.
The only thing that lessens the light of the stars is the coming of the greater light. It casts out the darkness completely.
“You are the light of the world.”Matthew 5:14
