The Light - Day 19

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said:

"Wake up, O sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you."

We are told to expose the darkness. There are situations that seem to not be right, but we might now expose them because they don't have anything to do with us personally.  It's hard to do the right thing when you might stand out for it.  But outfitted with the armor of God, you can do all things.
