He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? 22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”
24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. 25 Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” (Mark 4:21–25, NIV)
What’s the purpose of a lamp? To shine light. What’s your purpose? Are you fulfilling it?
How crazy is it to think one would buy a lamp and then hide it so no-one could see the light from it? Why do people try to hide those things they have–ability or message?
How difficult is it for you to understand what you have been given and your ability to use those gifts?
Why do you think people who “do not have” will have what they do have taken from them?
