darkness (어둠)

Ecclesiastes 2:14 (ESV)

14 The wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the same event happens to them all.

 

Darkness. 어둠.

To be completely blind is actually quite scary. Stumbling around with no idea of where one is or where one is going.

Yet I don’t think we consider the impact of our spiritual blindness.

It’s as if we’re ignorant of our own blindness. Like we don’t know any better.

But how good is it to see a light in the dark. The hope and joy it brings is indescribable.

We are told by the Apostle John that Jesus is the ‘true light, which gives light to everyone‘ (John 1:9) and that this ‘… light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ (John 1:5)

What good news!

His death was not in vain but in fact defeated ‘death forever’ as prophesied. (Isaiah 25:8)

We would do well to be wise and not foolish.
