    you don’t have to expand on that theme!
    My middle son several years ago, left in the middle of the night to comfort his (then soon to be) ex-girlfriend. Left a candle burning. Readers’ Digest version: house might have burned down but for quick response of my youngest son putting out the fire with a garden hose!

    Far too often it does both in the heart when spurred by sinful sparks. Just ask the old chap whose flame was kindled by a 22 year old and who lost all in his “house” that was dear to him. Once the house was burned, the flame went out.
