Leonard Ravenhill lived with a correct view of this earthly life. He once said: “I have a candle on my desk and a candlestick. People say, “Can I get you a new candle?”
“No thank you, that candle is my life; I have about 3 inches left on it. Things being normal, I don’t have far to go.”
This is how each of us ought to view life– it is brief, it is burning away, and we must shine while we still have any life left.
