the night cometh, when no man can work. (John 9:4)
Not everyone who is lost is lost because of darkness. Not every voice that cries for help is concealed in the night. Those we hear and those we see; those whom we pass on any given day. It is they who are easily forgotten and blatantly ignored. They scurry down the sidewalks, and they shuffle down the isle of our church. They are visible, yet they are lost. They are audible, but remain unheard.
We have hands but for a little while, to touch them. And we have feet that are momentary, to step into their pathway. Our eyes can see, and our mouths can speak, but only for a speck of time.
If our heartbeat persists for a thousand years, it is but a fragmented moment in all of eternity. Our strength will fail and our bodies will faint, but we have today to work. We have today to make a difference.
The sunlight is upon us; let us not slumber in its presence. We are illuminated with knowledge; let us not become forgetful. As the seasons change and the day fades into night, so will our lives change. And so will our opportunity to work.
Heavenly Father, help us to make good use of the time you have provided. Allow us to absorb the light of day and the warmth of the sun. And let us labor beneath it, in love and wisdom.
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:
for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand:
let us therefore cast of the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
