BIBLE VERSE: Matthew 5:14-15

You are the light of the world. A city upon a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives life to everyone in the house.

Turkish Delight: In the movie The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe, Narnia is under the frozen curse of the witch. When the children arrive, Edmund (the younger of 2 brothers) runs into the witch and is offered Turkish Delight. Remember, this is a horrible woman. Besides keeping Narnia frozen, she orders people/animals around as slaves and turns people to stone for looking at her the wrong way. Edmund asks for some Turkish Delight (a sweet, chewy candy served to British children at Christmas time).

And for Turkish Delight, Edmund is going to lure everybody into danger. Now, we could look at Turkish Delight as temptation, but it is not a sin to be tempted. So today we will look at Turkish Delight the same way we look at sin. And people who live their lives in sin, live their lives in darkness.
