Time for Oil Check

Lately, have you checked to see if
your soul's lamp is filled with (spiritual) oil?

Food for Thought:
Lampante oil as it was called in Biblical times was not used for consumption but as fuel for oil-burning lamps. From this ritual of anointing, the expected savior of the Jews was called the Messiah "anointed one". Olive oil in contemporary religious use also has religious symbolism related to healing and strength and to consecration, God setting a person or place apart for a special work.
