"Basking in the light"

Have you ever watched a sunrise with a friend or a member of your family? Words can hardly describe how beautiful the light can be sometimes. If you glance at each other, you see the soft glow of the sun’s light reflected on your faces.

Neither of you, of course, created any of the light or the beautiful colors. You both just bask in them. Even if you moved a mile apart from each other, you’d still be enjoying the same sun, the same light.

Things work in a similar way with the light of God’s love. People don’t create their own personal love with which to love others. They simply reflect the beauty of God’s love and happily share in it. No matter how far one person may be from another, they both are basking in exactly the same light, the same love that comes from God.
