Chanukah is called the Festival of Lights, so let’s think about light for a moment.
Upon entering a dark room, light doesn’t shout, “Darkness: You’re bad, you obscure and you’re negative, so I’m gonna chase you out of here!”
Light simply shines—quietly, brightly and steadily—as if the darkness is not even there. And you know what? It isn’t. It disappeared. Or maybe it was converted to light. Now, that’s a timeless lesson we can all apply when dealing with the issues that come our way.
Even though Thursday is the last day of Chanukah, the message is eternal.
Wishing you a light-filled last few days of Chanukah,
