do not light a lamp and then hide it in a jar
- or put it
under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand.
- Then those
who come in can see its light."
Sometimes when a person
first comes to know Jesus they are so happy their light shines
brightly. They can't keep quiet about His great love for them.
Time passes and they forget how wonderful He is. Their light
for God might even go out. God tells us that we must be on guard
and not let that happen. We need to keep our minds, hearts and
eyes turned to Him. People will be able to see we are His children
when we want to grow into shinning stars for His Son, Jesus!
