The Light of Christ

Sometimes it’s easier to see a little less, right?
If we choose to live in the dark, there is less to worry about, less effort needed, fewer things to take up time. If we choose to get closer to that light in the middle of the field, it will take work. It will take sacrifice. The reward will be a clearer vision of what Christ sees of us. I think we know that sometimes that vision will show us things we may not want to see. However, I feel that if I have been granted that vision, maybe Jesus knows I can handle it. Perhaps it is my talent that can help someone else move a few rows down. You may be the one person that can get someone to enter the stadium and start their journey towards the light. That journey towards the flame is yours to make. Your choices, your actions, your desire to see more of what the light of Christ shines upon is in your control.
I’m not sure of where I am in the stadium right now. I know my time at Jesuit has helped me move a few rows closer to the light. I hope that I’ve helped a few others move closer as well. As I’ve gotten older, I realize that actions and attitude, not money and notoriety, move me closer to the light.
