Children of the Light

St. Paul calls us to walk as children of he light. But in the verses that follows he gives us three adjectives that should describe us:

Agathos - good, not only morally good, but goodhearted, joy filled
Dikaios- righteous, a term used in the Eastern churches to refer to those in the Old Testament who keep the law of God.
Alethia- translated as truth, it literally means uncovered, or disclosed. A Christian life should not include things we feel we need to hide. It reminds us that as the old saying goes, character is what we do when we think no one is looking.

But lest we get to self-absorbe, let us focus our prayers today on those whose lives will be impacted by the storms today.
