Light The Candle

It is better to light the candle than to curse the darkness.

--William L. Watkinson 

 We tend not to do that. We take a look at the world around us and we see it enshrouded in darkness. We can't seem to get away from it and in fact, it seems to be growing darker by the moment.

We wring our hands and sometimes even lash out at those who are stumbling around in the dark. We shout at them, demanding that they do something about it, immediately. The problem is, they can't. The Light has to be brought to them.

There is a well-known song written by Harry Dixon Loes entitled "This Little Light Of Mine". 

"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine"

Are we lighting a candle and shining it into the darkness or are we merely cursing the darkness?
