The shopkeeper sells him a candle in hopes that it will open his eyes. As Thomas makes his way home by the light of the candle he runs into his family members that all need something from him. He gives his cloak, his bag, and all his belongings, yet when he arrives home he finds all of his family safe and sound. Thomas realizes that the candle has tricked him into thinking that strangers were his family. Instead of making him angry he learns the lesson of services to others.
