Light the Room – Luke 8:16

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Luke 8:16
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.

Many associate these words with not being ashamed or not hiding our faith. And I can definitely agree to that. However, I think there might be something else for us to consider.

The concern I have today is that sometimes we like to take this example from Yeshua and modernize it with today’s technology. Modern flash lights are very bright. When those lights are pointed in the eyes of those in the room, well, it’s not comfortable. In fact, it can down right hurt.

So, that being said, how are we presenting the Light? Are we forcing it on people? Are we shining the light in their eyes? That makes them just want to reject it. Especially if they’ve been in the dark. Their eyes aren’t ready for a super bright light.

Yet, if we do as Yeshua said and place our lamp on a stand, then others will see as the Father draws them to it. So are you letting others see or just blinding their eyes?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
