All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle. (Breathe Partners)

You can snuff out a candle to bring the room into complete darkness, but as long as the candle is lit, the darkness will be incomplete. It’s amazing what a little light can do—light the pathway, reveal a hidden object, enable you to read—its value is almost unlimited. The challenge, of course, is for us to bring light into dark situations, perhaps into the life of a darkened soul.

You are the light of the world . . .  let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. (Matthew 5:14, 16)
