Text: “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him”. – John 11:9, 10.


Comment: Just like the ant which makes full use of the Summer period to gather her food, so people of God should be diligent in putting to maximum use the opportunity they now have to hear the word of God and do His will. “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” (Isaiah 55:6, 7) Furthermore, St. Paul exhorts us to make “the most of the time, because the days are evil”. (Ephesians 5:16 Revised Standard Version) Because human beings have only one life to live, anyone who does not take advantage of the opportunity God has provided for His people to know Him and work for their salvation may not have a second chance. (Hebrews 9:27) The opposite of light is darkness.  This stands for deceit, falsehood, error, degradation, woe and death.  “The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble”. (Proverbs 4:19)  St. Paul exhorts us thus: “Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” – Romans 13:13, 14.
