One Candle Lighting Another

Reflect

Throughout the day, we encounter a variety of people who may be strangers. May this prayer support you in knowing that what you give to all brightens the world.


Pray

God, gently remind me
that how I treat
every single person today matters.
Help me give true kindness
to all who cross my path,
and to see all interactions
as a chance to pass on Christ’s love,
as simple as one candle
reaching out to light another.


Act

Today, see who you meet. Whether on the phone, in stores, at street corners--no matter how brief, offer them a little extra warmth from your heart.

I was at the grocery store and instead of saying “have a good day”, I looked at the cashier, smiled and said, “I hope you have a good day!” She could tell that I meant it and I really think it brightened her day.
