Drawn To The Light

They beat their little wings against the window pane every night. They can see the light through the glass and they are drawn to it...like a moth to the flame.

They are moths, and they are drawn to the brightest of lights. You can find them around the security light, the street light and the living room light every single night.

We often describe moths as robotic, mindless creatures, following the light like zombies. Maybe in a sense they are and do...but don't they really have the right idea?

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

The moth is simply following the light like it has been programmed to follow. As Christian women, we have also been reprogrammed to seek the Light, the Light of Christ. As the Light of the world, Jesus Christ is drawing us closer and closer to Him, motivating us to follow Him wherever He will lead.

So it's never wrong or robotic or mindless to be drawn to the Light. We're not brainwashed if our only desire is to be in the presence of the Lord. It's perfectly natural, once you've seen the Light, to want to be near the Light.

Are you drawn?
