We Will Shine

Not long ago, I saw a huge corona encircling the full moon, spanning nearly a quarter of the sky! 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Not long ago, I saw a huge corona encircling the full moon, spanning nearly a quarter of the sky! Now I already knew the glowing circle is caused by light refracted by water droplets. But that night I learned that ‘corona’ is derived from the Latin, meaning crown. It got me thinking… the Bible talks about “the crown of life,” the “crown of righteousness” and other crowns. But I’ve always had a hard time picturing gold hats with jewels as the rewards Jesus gives. That type of crown seems clunky. So, could the Bible be talking about coronas instead? The prophet Daniel says, “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Could it be that you and I will one-day shine brilliantly with our coronas of righteousness? Friend, that’s a great thought, a heavenly thought… something to think on today!
