Each of us, have times in our lives where the path we are following is not always clear. It is not always well lite, that we may see where we are going. Many of us stumble, some of us even fall, and yet others stop following the path because it has become too difficult to travel in the darkness. It is when we stop following, regardless of the difficulty, that we become lost. We become frightened.
In these times, we should turn to the word of God in Joshua 1:1-9, where he tells us, “The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” It is God who is the light, the beacon who leads us down the path, in the difficult times, in the hard times, during the times we give up. It is God who provides us with that light through his son Jesus, who has become the beacon we follow into the garden, into the kingdom.
Perhaps the person reading this is not a Christian, to you I would suggest that we all have a moral duty towards each other, we have a Civil virtue that we should exhibit towards each other. We are bound in our humanity, as such, we must show each other that compassion can over take any evil, understanding and love can break down any walls, and unity can overcome all obstacles.
Peace be with you
