The caves in California are so deep and extensive that many of them have never been explored. When a guide takes a group of visitors from cave to cave explaining the rock structure they huddle together. The caves are a scary place. Then the guide turns off the electric light which has been illuminating the chamber. The darkness is total. After a minute of this intense blackout, the guide lights a candle. Although the candle is small and the area large, the whole chamber is filled with light. Such a tiny illumination gives so much light.
Jesus said ‘You are the light of the world,’ Matthew 5:14. In our world there is much suffering and sadness, but the spark of the light of God in us can dispel the darkness. Sometimes our light is very small and insignificant but we are never too small to shine for Christ.
Darkness can never extinguish light.
