Issue 594 – Verse of the Week

May 11th – May 17th, 2023


For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.   1 Thessalonians 5:5

Day Bright

According to “How the Sun Works,” on a sunny day when you go outdoors, the brightness you experience ranges from 1,000 lumens in the shade to more than 6,000 lumens, like on a long stretch of a concrete highway. One lumen is the light of one candle. Sunlight boosts your brain’s serotonin, giving you energy while keeping you calm, positive, and focused—all traits that God desires for you! Being a child of the light, you are to disassociate yourself from the darkness around you (Romans 13:12). In a world that seems to be sinking deeper into darkness by the hour, you need to make a conscious effort to stay in step with the Holy Spirit and walk in the light of life which Jesus has given you (John 8:12). Shine bright like the day so that others may behold Christ in you!
