There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. (Edith Wharton, 19th-20th century Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist)
Where there is darkness, people of goodwill, want to bring light—whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual darkness. Sometimes, we can provide significant help with our own abilities or means, but often, we can only offer what someone else has made available to us to use. In either case, sharing light may be our most useful contribution to those in need.
You are the light of the world. . . . Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify [God] (Matthew 5:14; 16).
