It’s difficult to turn on the news or open the newspaper without seeing something bad in the headlines. Most days it would be very easy for us to give up on the broken world that we live in. Despite all this, we are called to rise above and bring a little light to the darkness that can surround us. Danny Gokey sings of the desire that God has for all of us to break the barriers that confront us and ‘rise’ to the occasion of discipleship. We are made to be children of the light. We are all loved by the Master of the Universe. Surely that’s reason enough to rise and shine every day. How will you rise today?
