"The Light of Life"

Psalm 37

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the LORD upholds him with His hand.

Proverbs 3

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

John 8:12

12When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

I don't know about you, but I like the idea of never walking in darkness and having the "light of life." I would love for God to delight in my life! Kind of reminds me of a baby taking his first steps and then watching the child grow older and learning. Fascinating and, yes, delightful seeing them learning about new things. I wonder if our Heavenly Father is the same way about His children.

Just some thoughts on my mind. What do you think the "light of life" is?

I think that the light of life should be having a sense of God' presence at all times. It will help you to avoid sin, be kind to others, and remember to pray. It will also remind you that there is nothing to fear in this current life because it is just temporary.
