An ancient proverb to relate the above image to a brave righteous woman.
The Chicago Tribune contained the above caption which reminded me of an ancient wisdom proverb.
The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. (Proverb 13:9)
“We Israelites also believe that the meaning of each star in the sky to be a spirit of a righteous ancestor. The larger and brighter the star, the more righteous were the deeds of the ancestor. As a bright light in a home indicates that someone is home, so does a star shine brightly as if to signal to us that the righteous deeds remain with us. There will be no lamp or shining stars for the wicked. Their deeds of darkness in life will be extinguished and forgotten in time when they die.”
Regards and good will blogging.
