A legacy of light

You are sure that you are a guide for the blind and a light for all who are in the dark.  Romans 2:19 CEV

We are kindled that we might kindle others. I would like, if I might have my choice, to burn steadily down, with no guttering waste, and as I do so to communicate God’s fire to as many unlit candles as possible and to burn on steadily until the socket comes in view; then to light in the last flicker, twenty, thirty, or a hundred candles at once, so that as one expires they may begin burning and spreading light which shall shine until Jesus comes.  – from L.B. Cowman’s Springs in the Valley devotional.
