Eckhart: light in the darkness

Saturday, December 21, 2019
    Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light.” When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.
    —John 12:35-36 (NIV)
    Light shines in the darkness, there we are aware of it. What good is light or learning unless people can enjoy it? In darkness, in suffering, they shall see the light.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?), Works of Meister Eckhart, London: J. M. Watkins, 1924, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also John 12:35-36; Isa. 9:2; Matt. 4:16; Luke 2:30-32; John 1:4-5; 8:12; 9:4-5; Eph. 5:8; 1 Pet. 2:9; 1 John 1:5-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I trust You as the only source of light for my life.
