Shadow Proves the Sunshine

by Mrsethprice

Switchfoot is an amazing band and their lead singer, Jon Foreman, is straight money lyrically.  They have this one song though that gets me called The Shadow Proves the Sunshine.

The lyric that gets me is part of the chorus

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight,
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Here’s the deal. We are all born crooked souls and many people try their whole life to walk a straight path. That’s easy enough to see day in and day out. My question to you is this: Does the shadow prove the sunshine (or in other words…does sin prove grace/salvation)?

Let me know

Here’s the song for your reference:
