There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it (Edith Wharton, 19th-20th century writer).

Not everyone can be a leading scorer on the basketball or football team or have the lead role in a play or movie. The role of the rest of the team or the cast is to help the “leader” be his or her very best. The primary function of the #2 office person is to make #1 successful. When we do that well, we are the mirrors that make the star’s light even brighter.

If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant. . . For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! (Luke 11:36; Ephesians 5:8)
