One evening a man took a small candle from a box and began to climb a long winding stairway. “Where are we going?” asked the candle. “We’re going up higher than a house to show the ships the way to the harbour.”
“But no ship in the harbour could ever see my light,” the candle said, “it is so very small.”
“If your light is small,” the man said, “just keep on burning brightly and leave the rest to me.”
When they reached the top of the long stairs, they came to a large lamp. Then he took the little candle and lit the lamp. Soon the large polished mirrors behind the lamp sent beams of fight out across miles of sea.

REFLECTION: In the Master’s Plan we are His candles! Our job is to keep on shining. The success of our work is in His hands. A tiny candle or match can start a forest fire. The little flame of your good example can actually change the lives of others without you knowing it. Be a light to them like the beacon light in the story which guide the ship to safe harbour.
