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.
