Tell Me the Stories of Jesus: Candles and Floodlights
The parable of the Lamp shows us an important part of how we share the message of hope with the world…by being a beacon of light to the people in our lives at home, school, work, in the community and around the world. If we keep the light we have gained to ourselves, being inwardly focused to our own needs, we cannot live out the challenge God gives us to share Him fully with others. The fact is, it is not all about us and we cannot keep it to ourselves.
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
