This past summer, I visited the Mammoth Caves with our youth group in Kentucky.
The caves consist of miles upon miles of dark, seemingly endless passageways. It is said that the Mammoth Cave began hundreds of millions of years ago and continues today as the longest cave in the world; more than 335 miles of mapped passageways.
Once down in the cave, it was cold and dark. We had to really watch our step.
Today's Scripture reading in Psalms made me think of this experience down in the caves. Without light, the darkness would be so great that it would be impossible to see your next step.
The sin in the world is much like this dark cave. Without the illumination of the light of God, none of our steps would be clear (or safe).
(Psalm 18:28) "You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light."
Perhaps you have been stumbling in the dark. You don't have to any more because of Christ. His light shines everywhere; all we have to do is turn It on and watch the darkness fade.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: Genesis 42-43, Matthew 14:1-9, Psalm 18:16-29
