I discovered this fact from Nova yesterday on social media: Nearly 90% of all deep-sea species shine from within.
Reading this begged the question, what about the human species? If 90% of deep-sea creatures are equipped with light to traverse the darkest depths of the sea, what about us humans? We need a light! We need light to see our way in dark places. We need light to energize our bodies and nourish our bones. We need inner light to propel us forward with hope when uncertainties abound. From whence cometh our light?
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of Life.” John 8:12
