Love Dispels Hate


Shine the light of compassion and justice.

Mark 4:21-22

Jesus said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light.”


When we see injustice…we are required to shine the light of truth upon it.

No injustice can be hidden from God.

Jesus certainly wants us to shine the light of God’s truth…but also the light of God’s Love.

How is God calling you to shine that Light?

But beyond that…could Jesus also be saying that we should not be afraid of the darkness inside of us…the things we struggle with and aren’t proud of?

What if we weren’t afraid to allow God’s Light to shine into those areas as well?

Jesus never condemned or ridiculed those who humbly brought their shortcomings to him…but instead he forgave, loved and healed them.

Allow the Light of Love and Truth to shine on you…in you…and through you.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)
