A light for the path…

In Israel and the middle east in nearly every archaeological dig, the archaeologists find tiny clay lamps. These lamps are shaped kind of like Aladdin’s lamp and were designed as a vessel to hold oil. From a small opening or wick, a tiny candle sized flame would be emitted. In different scriptural passages lamp light is mentioned as a metaphor for faith. What makes this interesting is that those tiny lamps can only provide enough light for the next one or two steps in the darkness…I wonder sometimes if that is how God operates…just enough light for the next step…Perhaps faith is trusting that there are next steps masked in the night not yet revealed to us…May we all follow the light we have, appreciate the steps we can see and have the courage and faith to believe that wonderful steps lie ahead just waiting to be illuminated…
