Mark 4:21-25

Why would a person light a lamp and then hide it? A lit lamp is intended to illuminate its surroundings. Through this parable, Mark is likening his hearers to lamps, and the light is the light of Christ. That light must not be hidden. After hearing the word, we must ponder it and become a light for others.

As children we sang, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine … ” What sweet simplicity. I am going to let Christ’s light shine through me.
