A lighthouse keeper who worked on a rocky stretch of coastline received oil once a month to keep his light burning. Not begin far from a village, he had frequent guests. One night a woman needed oil to keep her family warm. Another night a father needed oil for his lamp. Then another needed oil to lubricate a wheel. All the requests seemed legitimate, so the lighthouse keeper tried to meet them all. Toward the end of the month, however, he ran out of oil, and his lighthouse went dark, causing several ships to crash on the coastline. The man was reproved by his superiors, "You were given the oil for one reason," they said, "to keep the light burning." (quoted in Just Like Jesus, by Max Lucado, p. 97)
