The light sometimes hurts

Friday March 20th, John 3: 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. Christ came into the world to bring salvation to all of humanity. God so loved the cosmos he gave his only son to save not only you and I, but to save the whole world, all of creation. Yet, humanity still finds ways to live in the shadows. It is the shadows where we can justify our bailout bonuses as something good. It is in the shadows that we can read of the economies effects on wall street and not see what is happening were there are no real roads. Looking at something in the light sometimes hurts, but as with the snake Moses held up in the wilderness, looking at it in the light is the only way we can begin to be cured. Facing that which is killing you is the first step and any twelve step program, for good reason.  Without first facing that which is killing us we remain in the darkness, and without the light of Christ, there is no cure.
