Let Your Light Shine

If candles had feelings, what would they say?
I don't feel like burning, I don't want to today.
My wick is too long
I'm covered in spots
I sit in a bowl, filled with small rocks
I stand in a corner
I'm fat or I'm thin
There's too much to do, I don't know where to begin.
The room is too big;
The room is too small;
I make people sneeze, they don't like me at all.
No matter the pain or excuse that they give
It all makes a difference as to how they will live.
Each one has a talent, equally good
And all have one purpose: to give light like they should.

Matthew 5:16
Therefore, let your light shine before all men so that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven!
