The Dark Secret

Travis Butler was a 9-year old boy, who concealed a dark secret: his mother lay dead on the living room floor of their apartment. Travis covered her body with his coat and placed sheets of notebook paper over her face.

Travis feared that if anyone found out, someone would come, take him, and place him in foster care.

Travis fixed his own meals. He cut his own hair. He faithfully attended school. Finally, after one month, friends of his family discovered his secret.

The world can be a pretty dark place. I think Paul had that in mind when he challenged Christians to shine like lights in a dark world (Phil. 2:15). Someone needs to bring light and beauty into the lives of the Travis’s of this world.
