Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 34.5

“Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.”

It’s an interesting way to describe them – those who look to the LORD – as radiant.

But as you think of it, perhaps it makes sense.

Consider the contrast between light and dark in the scriptures.  Think about how we are to be the “light of the world.”  Remember how the scriptures speak of Moses’ face after his communion with God.

So maybe it makes sense that the Psalmist speaks of the ones who seek God reflect His glory.

That same Psalm continues:

“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”

To look to God is to receive

  • Grace
  • Peace
  • Guidance
  • Forgiveness
  • Love
  • Purpose
  • Wisdom
  • Hope
  • And much more.

No wonder we can’t help but reflect the radiance of God.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for shining your radiant love into my life, and showing me how to reflect it to others.  AMEN.
