Tip Lewis and His Lamp by Pansy
Tip was a disobedient boy in school, but when he heard spiritual truth, it caught in his mind. Tip became a Christian but was faced with an onslaught of testing immediately. Tip learned the Bible and how it was a lamp for his life. He realized that he had a great work to do helping people to become Christians. Soon God worked in family and friends to bring them to Himself and change their lives. Tip went away from his home to work for a merchant where he learned about business and character. An important verse is Psalm 119:105—"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
