You are My Light

"No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel basket..." Luke 8:16. 

If we think of absurdities, this can be one of them, lighting a lamp and then hiding it away. Another would be buying a car and pushing it to work! 

Jesus talks of putting a lamp out in the open, where it can be seen. He says this after telling the parable of the sower, where He explains the seed is God's message. 

Clearly Jesus is telling us that we can't keep the Word of God for ourselves. Psalm 119:105 says that God's Word is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path. Others need a light for their path too. David sings in 2 Samuel 22:29 that, "O Lord, You are my light, You light up my darkness." Shouldn't we be like David and not be ashamed to proclaim the goodness God does for us? Indeed, we should look for every opportunity to display the "light of the world" so that more and more people will find their way out of darkness.
