What Might I Become?

May I become an island for those seeking dry land
A lamp for those needing light,
A place of rest for those who desire one,
And a servant for those needing service.

–  Shantideva, “May I Become an Island”

  1. The stunning photo of the lamp shedding its light is a reminder
    to not necessarily seek out a soul in need bur rather that our
    light, our presence, be seen when solace might bring hope to
    one in need of hope or a safe place from pain for one who suffers.

  2. Just as a stunning sunset can dazzle us with its beauty, we can shine an inspiring light into someone’s mind and in that moment help them redirect their life toward the eternal light of Christ.
