Way of the Sin is Darkness

Darkness... a thought of this will make us run for finding some source of light. Have you ever walked on a path pr road which is totally dark. I assume the answer would be YES.. for many of us. Darkness symbolizes or can be related to human emotions like fear, agony, suffering and pain. One common aspect among all these is that none of this is a good act or emotion to be experienced in life. We will never want any of these to me attached to our lives. Darkness is not liked by any, and this is one thing that we always try to take off.

But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.
[Proverbs 4:19]

Darkness comes when the source of light goes.. this is not a new information for anyone, but yet a strong and powerful thought to be understood, and compared to similar instance in our life, when our lives go through dark or darkness phase. How or why does light go from a place, which make darkness cover the area... ? One reason is manually knowingly taking off light, and other scenario is when light goes without us knowing possibly through some external involvement. Whatever is the case, one thing is sure that with light gone, darkness will certainly come in our life, both physically and spiritually. 

Way of the Righteous

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
[Proverbs 4:18]

Light signifies purity, freshness, energy, blessings etc... When talking about dawn, we can think about sun and the brightness and freshness it brings to nature. New day comes through light and with this light the darkness from the previous night is taken off. Sun enlightens nature and all its system and all in it. It renews earth and helps life to sustain. Seeds and seasons to pass. All these can happen only if the sun comes with its light and energy. Sun has no value if it looses its light. Can we imagine a sun with no light, as with no sun there will be total darkness and then how can we expect darkness to remove darkness. With sun with its light and energy how can the life on this earth be sustained and nature be blessed. Now this said, if we try to understand the verse in context it is trying to say that the path or way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, i.e. its like the shining light of the rising sun.
