According to Peter Drucker,  as he wrote about management, the more is drawn nearer the Scriptures.   A manager/management writer has to be near the truth and the light.   For example, he said that one of the most elusive truth in a business is the P and L.  Depending on your accounting policy, you could always alter the bottom line.

Thus you have to find the truth and when you are nearer the truth, you become nearer the Light.  And the Light is the  Lord.

The Proverbs 6:23 says that the the commandment is the lamp and the law is the light.   Thus Peter Drucker and Proverbs are convergent.  There is a truth in commandments that correspond to the teaching of the Scriptures.

Jesus Declares I am the light of the world, the truth shall set you free John 8:25 -58

From the Gospel  of St Thomas  114 Sayings from Gospel of St Thomas (not in NT)

From Verse 61.6

5) Therefore I say: If someone becomes < like > (God), he will become full of light.
But if he becomes one, separated (from God), he will become full of darkness.

Verse 77:   Jesus says:
(1) “I am the light that is over all. I am the All. The All came forth out of me. And to me the All has come.”
(2) “Split a piece of wood — I am there.
(3) Lift the stone, and you will find me there.”

One of the interesting points in the Gospel of St Thomas is that the Kingdom of God is here at hand.   There is a divine light within all of us, we just  need to open our eyes.  We should restore earth nearer to the Kingdom of God.  That means a  lot  of Christian hard work to bring peace prosperity, lessen hardship, sickness, accidents, war and the like.  To help one another  as children of God
