Chapter 7, Page 16, Book 20

A candle looses nothing by lighting another candle.

James Keller

July 16 - share the light 

In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.

Sir Francis Bacon

The concept of light and darkness is useful in talking about both life and the contrast happiness and depression or sadness.  But in some ways you wouldn’t know what happiness or light was like without the sadness or darkness at times.  
If we didn’t have difficult days we wouldn’t appreciate good ones so much.

I’ve so much to be thankful for these days that there is a lot of light/sunshine in my days.  Believe it or not when you count up what your thankful for, the world looks a lot brighter.   People cannot survive or succeed in life by not receiving assistance from other people.  If you help someone you lose nothing by doing so.  In fact your candle will become more brighter for sharing your light.

Someone once said , We can’t help everyone; but everyone can help someone.  This simple phrase means that if people can unite, they can manage to help some one.  We’re all in this together.  Let us share what we have so those that don’t can exist. People are hopeless and suffering around the world and we are the hope they could get.  

Most people don’t share their light with others because they expect to receive something in return. We should help others without expecting anything we do it from the heart, we do it for free.  You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

You don’t lose anything by making someone feel good or helping them to succeed. Someone else's’ success and happiness cots you nothing and it feels good to now youve made their life better.

Lets increase our own light by giving it to others. and remember always that to do more, we must be more .  

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Edith Wharton

For sure! In my own life there have been 'good times' I just took for granted. Until, that is, I had to walk through a dark period to appreciate the light. How many times I've promised myself, when we come to the end of this uncertain season I'll never take a hug for granted again.
"We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone." -- that's a great way in which to live our lives!

So true we can't help everyone but everyone can help someone. We need to continue to share the light of Jesus to this world of darkness.
