Did you know that sunflowers turn to face the sun? I recently learned from a gardener friend that the flowers twist throughout each day so they can bask in the direct rays of sunshine as the source of light moves through the sky. No wonder these vibrant flowers are called sunflowers! The way sunflowers crave the sun reminds me that God names us sons of light (see Ephesians 5:8) and beckons us to live in His Son’s light. Like sunflowers, we too need to desire the Sunlight and regularly turn our perspective in order to keep His light in our focus.
