Light a Lamp

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your goodness and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:15-16 (NIV)

Spring has arrived. It’s school vacation this week in Massachusetts. The Boston Marathon is Monday. My son is on a school trip to Italy. I’m taking advantage of reduced responsibilities this week to borrow a generous friend’s house for a study retreat. I would appreciate prayers for enlightenment and rest.

I am scheduling scripture posts for the week and am asking for your reflections, instead of mine. If you receive Seeds by email subscription, simply reply to the email. If not, please add your thoughts in the blog’s comment section.

Which words speak to you: light, bowl, stand, house, shine, goodness, glorify God?

  1. Praying for you. We are the light in the darkness. Some may run from it but others will be drawn to it. We reflect that light back to God for His glory and purpose. Have a great week.
