“The path of the righteous is like first gleam of dawn,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
Proverbs 4:18 (NIV)
Have you ever been outside when the sun breaks through the early morning sky? There is a small ray of light that grows wider and more pronounced as you watch it. Then the colors of the sky lighten and the sun breaks through and fills the firmament with its light. All you can see is the brightness of the sunshine as the rays reach out for as far as you can see.
Solomon, the wisest man of all times, compares our path as receivers of God’s righteousness to the progression of the sun. Our heavenly Father rewards us as we learn and apply His teachings to our lives.
When we master one lesson He has for us, God presents us with more opportunities to serve Him and to continue to grow in our spirits.
