From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“This penchant for God’s Word, this hunger and passion to hear and know what’s in the Bible, has stayed with me all my life.  It has sustained me in times of trial and trouble; it has recalled me from sinful habits; it has enabled me to be used of God to shed light into the darkness in others’ lives.  Having the Word is much like having a torch in a dark cave.  It gives you a great measure of assurance in taking the next step in the darkness.  When I have wandered off into the world, it has shown me the righteous way.  The light from the torch also attracts others towards it, so that as you hold it up, it becomes a beacon whereby others may navigate effectively and may be drawn out of the darkness into the marvelous light.  They will approach you to get their own torches re-kindled and thus spread the light into other parts of the cave.  “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.  For Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.”  “Your Word is a light unto my feet and a lamp unto my pathway.””
