The Bright Side...

I heard this on the radio: "No one ever went blind looking at the bright side of life." (I have no idea who it is attributed to - suffice it to say that this is divine wisdom speaking).

It's so paradoxically true. Think about Saul who became Paul - he was blinded by a bright light (see Acts 9: 1 - 19) and regained his sight with the prospect of a very bright life ahead.

Prov 4: 18 says: "But the path of the [uncompromisingly] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared]."

That's the key to the brighter side of life - being righteous. Only the righteous - those who are in right-standing with Jesus Christ Who is the light of the world and in Whom is the light of life. He came and gave His life so we can see and live in the brighter side of life.

Like Paul, accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour grants you access to the brighter side of life. Your life can definitely be better and brighter than it is now. Do something for yourself - align yourself to the Light of men: Jesus. Remember:
"No one ever went blind looking at the bright side of life."
