"But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God." (John 3:21)
Isn't it wonderful to see the sunlight! I can remember, when my son was in grade school (so quite a few years ago!), one year it was stormy, cloudy, raining or snowing from sometime in October until sometime in March. There was NO sunshine! We, as a family, saw sunshine because we had family in VA & NC that we saw at Christmas. That was the year they started doing research on SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder. You can imagine, in March, how happy we were to see sunlight!
This part of the Gospel is Jesus reminding us that he will be "lifted up" so we can believe in him. At the same time we are reminded Jesus is the LIght. (v. 19) We are also reminded how following God, doing what God is calling us to do, shows God's Light (and Love) "so that it may be clearly seen." (v. 21) As Caregivers we are already "giving," and doing, so we can understand doing "what is true." But do we "come to the Light?
The question is -- do we believe it? IF we believe it are we doing it? IS God's Light being "clearly seen"? Definitely something to be thinking about during this Lenten season........
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
