This beautiful image underscores the tremendous humility of Jesus Christ the Son of God and our human tendency to be arrogant. As I look at the candle in the center of the image it seems to say to the man "instructing" Jesus Christ. "You can't hold a candle to The Light of the World".  May this image remind us to examine our hearts and seek humility in all circumstances.
