Shaving in the Dark

Well, I won’t do THAT again!  As I was getting ready for my day earlier this week, I attempted to do so without turning on any lights.  I had set out my clothes the night before, so I wasn’t in any danger there, but….

Did you know that shaving in the dark is nearly impossible? 😉  Do NOT try it.  Thankfully, I was using an electric razor, or who knows the damage I might have done.  As it was, I simply missed a LOT of places resulting in a very “interesting” look.  A pathetic look that only became obvious to me once I got in front of a mirror with some light in the room.  After a good laugh, I spent 30 seconds correcting the problem and went on with the day.

I wonder how many problems, small and big, could be avoided by spending more time in the light – the light of God’s Word, the light that comes when we learn, love and worship with other Christians, etc.  I’ve observed what occurs when folks begin to withdraw from corporate worship in a local church.  Generally, like my poorly-shaven face, it’s not very pretty.  Folks, there’s a reason Scripture tells us to meet together frequently – because we NEED one another.  God did not make any Lone Ranger Christians. –Dave

“Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Heb 10:24-25)
