Jesus said to the crowd: “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”
We are all given gifts by the Lord. If we hide them and do not use them, they could be taken away. Because we were given these gifts to not only use for others, but to bring others to God. What have you done with your gifts? Are they hidden or visible to everyone?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I try to always use the gifts you gave me for the benefit of all. Help me to remember and not try to hide or neglect them. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
