For at one time you were in darkness, but now you are
light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the
fruit of light is found in all that is good and right
and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the
Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
but instead expose them.
-- Ephesians 5:8-13
