children of the day

1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 5:4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in the dark, causing this day to surprise you like a thief
1 Thessalonians 5:5 because you are all children of light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or the darkness.

children of the day

At night there is darkness all around us, so we close ourselves in and curtail our activities, to be safe. We don’t know what’s out there, so we limit our activity.

But children of the day are not limited. They are busy, and in control, and will not be surprised by a thief. They are always ready for him.

Lord, show us how to stay busy doing what you have called us to do, so that we are always ready for your return.
