Add your light

“I have set thee to be a light” (Acts 13:47).
“Now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (Eph. 5:8).

It does not light the building much, but it is better than none at all. The next man brings his candle, and the next family brings their candles. By the time the house is full there is plenty of light. So if we all shine a little there will be a good deal of light. If we cannot all be lighthouses, any one of us can at any rate be a tallow candle.”
