Jesus Christ is “the light of the world.” (John 8:12) Each child depicted here represents different ways that we seek truth and allow it to magnify the divine light within us. The young boy in the back represents being on the verge of conversion, weighing His words in a spirit of real intent. The girl on the right demonstrates the precious gift of receiving the testimony of Christ. The infant expresses our need to be nurtured in love. The last two children, both looking with adoration at the Lord, represent two complementary ways of growing in light and truth—prayer and the study of the word. “While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.” (John 12:36)
