"But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God." John 3:21


Good and gracious Lord of light and truth, we seek to follow your Son into all truth. He is the Light that leads the way. The fascinations of this world: wealth, power, fame and honor, can blind us to the light and the truth, to Christ himself. In pursuit of wealth, power, fame and honor one does many wicked things mostly in the dark.

Sometimes I remain in the dark to save face, or admire the rich and the famous and prefer to spend time with them. Sometimes I am tempted not to speak the truth when to do so might displease a more powerful person. Or I oversimplify to seem knowledgeable.

Lord, help me always to be a child of the Light and the Truth, to follow Christ first and last. Amen.
