Living Word Reflection: Sleeper, wake!

David was something of a sleeper; hidden in plain sight but somehow connected with ‘the spirit of the Lord.’

As Paul says in Ephesians, he was illuminated by the light and turned into light, ‘having nothing to do with the futile works of darkness, but exposing them by contrast.’

What is being asked? Look at Jesus opening eyes. Humble work to make a paste of dirt and spittle; profound work to bring the light, to myself as well as others.

Look beneath surfaces. Illuminate the hidden worth.

Sleeper, wake! ‘Try to discover what the Lord wants of you.’
