Definition: A candle
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
~ Edith Wharton
In the Bible there are several verses containing the words lamps and candle sticks. It's interesting that during our holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas; going into the darkest part of our season, is when most bring out those items in our present culture and society. In Exodus 35 it clearly talks about the gifts brought to the tabernacle but notice how several verses refer to.... "all whose hearts were willing". The willing part is the Light of God that has come to pass.
