Daylight Savings Time
Today’s Reading: John 9:4-5 (NIV)
4 “As long as it is day, we must do the work of Him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

I enjoy the longer daylight hours. There is something delicious about not having to drive home from work at in total darkness. It means I can go outside and play for an hour – I can actually see my messy garden beds that are begging for a little extra attention and tender loving care. I can take a walk and still see where I’m walking. When the weather warms up, the days will grow longer and soon we will be mowing the grass and pulling weeds. I have come to enjoy the extra time outside while the daylight lasts.
Jesus understood the value of His light. His Father sent Him to be the light of life to a dark and disillusioned world. He only had so much time to do the work of the One who had sent Him. Jesus knew that the night would eventually come, when no one would be able to work.
We have an amazing window of opportunity to share the Gospel message with others right now! There is still a little daylight left outside. How will you choose to use the extra time God has given you to plant seeds for His kingdom?
Grace and peace,
