Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.
Bible study: Live as children of light - for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true.
The light is like the good, it is diffusive and expansive. Tomas de Aquinas in his book Summa Theologiae compares God with the Sun, just as we receive the light of the sun through its rays, so we receive from the creator his spiritual gifts. The spiritual gifts are perfections and qualities of God: "Be perfect as you heavenly Father is perfect", Matthew 5:48; "Be merciful as you heavenly Father is merciful", Luke 6:36. When a perfection is transmissible to the man we say that this perfection is a supernatural gift such as perseverance.
Having light in the bible means seeing things as they are; that is, to see or perceive with the mind the things in their true essence and not in appearances. This is why Paul in his letter to the Ephesians tells us about being children of the light: "Live as children of light - for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true." Ephesians 5:8-9

To be children of the light means to be born of the spirit, to be born again in the wisdom of God:
"Jesus replied: ´Very truly I tell you, no one can see the Kingdom of God unless they are born again.´
´How can someone be born when they are old?´ Nicodemus asked.
´Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother's womb to be born!´
Jesus answered: ´Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying: ´You must be born again´. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the spirit´". John 3:3-8
The perfect virtue, or spiritual gift, of wisdom is an infused and supernatural virtue, it cannot be taught. We receive this virtue when we are born again. And it is through this virtue that we perceive things with the light of the truth, there are no mysteries for those who are born again.
According to the bible the light (wisdom of God) has three fruits, good, righteousness, and truth. The good is a nature, every being tends to his own good or perfection. The truth is precision and accuracy. Righteousness is to always act by ethical principles.
The apostle Paul calls us to be children of light, sons of wisdom.
