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.” Lk_8:16-18
Who in our world is not constantly observed any more, today. With smartphone cameras, security cams, hidden cameras and apps that might be watching us even when we don’t realize it, there REALLY is nothing hidden, nothing secret. And so, Jesus warns us that, even before any of that technology was present, God sees our every thought and action.
Thus, we are to live as though the light was constantly on. We are to live as though our every move was on someone’s Facebook page. We are to live with God’s righteousness and with nothing that we should ever be ashamed of, either in our thoughts, our words, or our deeds! This will not only be pleasing to God, but it will make our lives a whole lot more pleasant too!
