21 Jesus said to them, “Does anyone bring in a lamp in order to put it under a basket or a bed? Shouldn’t it be placed on a lampstand? 22 Everything hidden will be revealed, and everything secret will come out into the open. 23 Whoever has ears to listen should pay attention!” 24 He said to them, “Listen carefully! God will evaluate you with the same standard you use to evaluate others. Indeed, you will receive even more. 25 Those who have will receive more, but as for those who don’t have, even what they don’t have will be taken away from them.” (Mark 4:21-25, CEB)
Have you ever put a lamp under a basket? Why have the lamp at all?
There are reasons things exist and to use them for the contrary is defeating the purpose. And everything we think we have hidden away will be made known to all.
God knows all of your secrets and still loves you.
So go into the world and share that love. Do not hide yourself. But share the love that you have been given!
Love People. Love God.
