Moody: a small light

Thursday, October 26, 2017
    Feast of Alfred the Great, King of the West Saxons, Scholar, 899
    Commemoration of Cedd, Founding Abbot of Lastingham, Bishop of the East Saxons, 664
    [Jesus:] “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
    —Matthew 5:14-15 (KJV)
    Remember, a small light will do a great deal when it is in a very dark place. You put one little tallow candle in the middle of a large hall, and it will give a good deal of light.
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), “To the work! To the work!”: Exhortations to Christians, Chicago: F. H. Revell, 1884, p. 139 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:14-15; Pr. 4:18; John 5:35; 12:36; Eph. 5:8-10; Phil. 2:15; 1 Thess. 5:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I be a light.
