Shabbos Lights

Shabbos does not really need our lights; Shabbos itself as a source of radiance, and with the arrival of Shabbos every Jewish home is lit up with this splendor of Shabbos. Then why do we Kindle Shabbos lights? The Sages tell us that every awakening above must be preceded by an awakening below. Hashem’s blessing descends only if we take the first step. By kindling the Shabbos lights, we awaken Hashem’s favor, and He will bestow His Divine Light on Us. ~ Oheiv Yisrael
