Lent – Wednesday – April 13

John 12:36

It is easy to feel small and unimportant in the world, easy to believe that our small accomplishments cannot really make a difference. We see a big world, with all its trouble and woe, and wonder if our piddly contributions make any impact at all. We ask ourselves, “Does my life count?” At such times, we need to consider a candle. How small and quiet and unassuming is the light of one candle. Yet all the darkness in the world cannot overcome it. One candle’s light dispels all the darkness. Just one. You are a child of the light. Just one. Shine.
Lord, make me your child of the light and help me shine. Amen.
