For the rest of us, I have a food-for-thought quote about lighthouses and how we might be a lighthouse for someone in need. I read this recently in Lisa Wingate’s The Prayer Box. The character Iola is speaking. Let’s listen and see if she’s speaking to us:

“What does a lighthouse do? . . . It never moves. It cannot hike up its rocky skirt and dash into the ocean to rescue the foundering ship. It cannot calm the waters or clear the shoals. It can only cast light into darkness. It can only point the way. Yet through one lighthouse you guide many ships. Show this old lighthouse the way.”

“The light of the righteous shines brightly . . .” Proverbs 13:9a
