A lighthouse is a friend indeed for a lost ship to see from far away. But as illustrated in this picture, it is insufficient without some lower lights to show the boundaries of a harbor.

Jesus is the Light; he needs men and women who will point the way to a safe harbor. He needs the lower lights to guide the struggling seafarer safely to the shore.

About oneta hayes

    This was one of my favorite hymns as a child, in that I was small for my age until high school and keenly felt like a “lower light.” 😉
