Faulty torches low on battery…
Dying lamps low on oil…
When you take any of these into a dark room, darkness competes with the little light they produce.
If a small dark room can't feel the effect of the light, a dark city won't even know there's light somewhere.
With no fuel and no easy way to access more, the lights go out after a while, thus giving darkness what it wants – darkness.
But we can be excellent to the point where colleagues ask, "How do you do it?" We only need to know where and how to promptly access more fuel when we need it.
The lights will dim at a point, strength will fail at a point, but when we know how to recharge and refuel, the city won't notice. We'll always standout in the works of our hands. Stay connected to God. That's all the fuel we need.
