Light of the righteous shines brightly: Proverbs 13.9

“The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked goes out.”

Proverbs 13.9

The righteous light, literally, rejoices. It is characterized by durable joy and produces the same. The wicked’s deceitful light cannot be sustained.

Righteousness permeates both the life of the righteous and his surroundings. Its power transforms. Purity, grace, virtue, and truth bless and redeem.
