Mark 4:21–25 (NKJV, also appearing in Luke 8:16-18, 11:33)
21 Also He said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand? 22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”
24 Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. 25 For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”
The statements in this passage cover a great deal of thought. A light should be put on display, not hidden. Things hidden will be revealed and secrets will come to life. If you have ears, use them. The method which you use will be used to measure back to you. Those who have will receive more. All these adages are informative and revealing, and have some level of connection. The bottom line is this: The light of God will shine on all things and reveal the good and the bad. Be careful that you give well and behave well, for when all things are revealed, the reward will be commensurate to the life you have lived. Let God’s light shine on you and in you. You will receive what you give!
