God is the source of light. Light was there even before the creation of the sun, the moon, and the stars that God created only on the fourth day. Jesus, who proceeds from the Father, said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (Jn 8:12).
Even the physically blind people who approached Jesus had spiritual light or faith. So, they addressed Jesus as the Son of David, acknowledging him as the Messiah. Though we have physical sight, we need spiritual light from Jesus, its source. Let our light always shine in the world’s darkness.
