There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. (Edith Wharton, American writer and designer)
Shy people avoid the spotlight. Ambitious people often work hard to be seen and heard. But whatever our natural disposition, we all want to have a positive influence on those around us. Often, we are the bearer of good news and enjoy sharing with others. At other times, we can only reflect what we’ve learned or experienced from others. In either case, we are sharing the light.
Jesus: “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12). You are the light of the world (Matthew 5:4).
