Lights! Camera! Action!
You may not realize, but I took some theatre classes in college. I wanted to understand that "dazzle" I previously mentioned to light up that substance.
You know what I learned? Those stage lights wash everything out where everyone has to wear a pound of makeup just to look normal. To make two actors look a comfortable distance apart they have to film them uncomfortably close. Not everything on stage or set is to scale. Perspectives are forced to get the right shot. In other words, those lights are often highlighting a bunch of fake stuff.
That's not how it is with God's light. While the world is focused on highlighting a bunch of stuff that doesn't really matter, God is highlighting love incarnate. God's light doesn't wash us out, or force us to see a perspective that isn't true. God's light simply highlights what is already true. In this case: a baby come to change the story for the better.
What truth do you need to highlight today?
Dear God of light,
Highlight in us the things that really matter.
