A Dark Restaurant

string-pop-up-restaurantVance Havner:

Some time ago a friend of mine took me to a restaurant where they must have loved darkness rather light. I stumbled into the dimly-lit cavern, fumbled for a chair, and mumbled that I needed a flashlight in order to read the menu. When the food came I ate it by faith and not by sight. Gradually, however, I began to make out the objects a little more clearly. My host said, “Funny, isn’t it, how we get used to the dark?” “Thank you,” I replied, “You have given me a new sermon subject.” (Taken from The Best of Vance Havner, p. 84)

Don’t get used to it. Instead, as Paul said, “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them” (Ephesians 5:11).
