Sunday Inspiration: The Greatest Light

the greatest light


“Hidden in the deepest darkness is the greatest light.

It’s our job to light up a world of darkness,

to reflect God’s light in this world.” -Rabbi Reuven Wolf


Hanukkah begins this evening and ends on the evening of December 30 this year.

I picked this quote because it honors Hanukkah, but I think it’s also appropriate for Christmas as well.

Whether we are Jewish or Christian or anything else, our calling is to light up the darkness around us with our compassion and kindness, our joy and passion.

So whether you are lighting Hanukkah candles or Christmas candles, don’t forget that these are reminders to kindle the light within us for this holiday season and for all the days that follow.

Happy Holidays to all of you.

    Thank you, Emilie. One of the things that troubles me most in this world is that so many people are opposed to any religion that they dont practice. It seems it has always been like that.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. We are enjoying family until Thursday and are very thankful for that.
