Carry Your Candle
I carried a small torch with me through the rather dimly lit corridor, and played around with it. I loved to watch how it shone through my finger nails producing a nice glowing red illumination.
On getting outside where the sun shone bright, I did not see that effect. It could only happen in the darker areas. Just like a candle, it’s most visible in the dark areas, and not quite useful in the sun….
Just like our Christian witness. We are to carry our candles, hold them up high, and go light up the darker areas of life- share Christ with someone, encourage a discouraged person; – that’s where we can be significantly efficient.
