Jesus said, “For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible;
nothing is secret except to come to light. . . . The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you,” Mk 4:21-25
Can we even fathom the impact of a statement such as that, beloved? Every thought, every ignored beggar, every cursed inept driver, every judgment, every act of revenge. OH the measures that will come back to us. Maybe it’s time to begin an outpouring of a new measure. Maybe it’s time to start forgiving. Maybe it’s time to start praying for whatever it is in their lives that might be making them inept (’cause, how many times are we inept ourselves?). Maybe it’s time to pull that lamp from beneath the bushel basket and let it shine from OURSELVES. And instead of being mirrors of what’s wrong with the world, being headlamps to dispel the darkness. Jesus can do that for us, if we just let Him.
