Be a lamp, or a lifeboat or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. – Rumi
Do you know someone who's discouraged? Has life got them down?
Be their lighthouse.
For hundreds of years, people relied on lighthouses to guide their passage on the seas. Sailors and travelers needed the lighthouse to shine their beacon to show them how to navigate the shoreline. Without the lighthouse, the boat/ship would crash onto the rocky shoreline, killing everyone on-board.
I have a few friends going through a bad time in their life right now. I offer words of encouragement, a listening ear and my shoulder to cry on.
"I don't know what I'd do without you."
"You're so strong."
In their darkness, I'm a beacon of hope, a sliver of Light.
You have the same ability. So, as you go about your day, shine your Light to weary travelers.
