Perhaps it’s a rogue thought, yet I am moved to write.
“I divided time into days and nights, so that you would have manageable portions of life to handle.”
From Jesus Calling for July 15 – Sarah Young
This is not an endorsement of the book or the author – rather a springboard for a thought.
The day is for work (and play), respectively; the night is for sleep and rest.
And what is rest anyway?
Quiet; repose; a state free from motion or disturbance; a state of reconciliation to God. source
What have we done?
Lights are powerful enough to keep the work day or play day going well into the dark.
Added to the lights are toys of every sort. Even when the body reclines, the mind continues to spin. And so under the cover of night with its artificial light much evil thrives; be it just the evil of bodies, souls, and minds who refuse to oblige The Maker of the Day and the Night, respectfully.
