The writer of James suggests that there’s something about the heavenly lights. It’s like the heavenly lights tell a story. But what is that story?
Perhaps it’s the story of beginnings…of genesis.
Genesis tells a story of a God who creates order…who starts with light…who extends goodness…who has power to speak and things happen…and finally…who partners with creatures, gives them power to extend light and goodness with God and each other.
So the heavenly lights tell us that the creation is a gift, and we are made to partner with God and each other in extending the gift of creation.
Are we good partners?
