Light and dark. One of the most popular contrasts for kids learning about opposites. This statement is most likely true because of the glaringly obvious difference between the two.
Exhibit A? This picture. As we pushed away from the dock and sailed away from St. Kitts, the whole world (okay, not the whole world; the sun was coming up somewhere) was dark. The water, sky - everything was pitch black. I could probably flip this picture upside down and you wouldn't even realize that it was.
Told you! Unless you're some type of super-observer, the average folk wouldn't immediately pick up that these two pictures weren't, in fact, the same.
Seeing those lights as an oasis in the darkness felt so peaceful. As we cut through the waves silently (well, as quietly as a cruise ship can be), and the lights grew smaller and smaller until they eventually disappeared.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
