Jesus said to his disciples, “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light. Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.” He also told them, “Take care what you hear. The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you. To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” 

There is nothing hidden from God. We think we sin in secret, but that is not possible. What we do in darkness shines brightly in God’s light. What do you want to shine before God? Your best or your worst? He gives us many graces and expects much from us in return. How much are you willing to give? 

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may my light always burn brightly before you, giving you glory and honor. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen. 

The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
