Mark 4:21-25

The Word of God

He said to them, ‘Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light. Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’ And he said to them, ‘Pay attention to what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you. For to those who have, more will be given; and from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.’

    • The light about which Jesus speaks is not a searchlight to expose, shame or embarrass. When the light of Truth is let shine, all is understood and forgiven. I have no need to hide.
    • "Pay attention to what you hear." O God, I give you this time that you may speak to me. Help me to notice your word among all the signals I receive. Bless me that I may pay attention and to receive it in my heart.

    • ‘To those who have, more will be given’. Lord, help me to see how much you give me. Let me see you as a lavish God who never holds back anything that might help me.
    • Jesus, help me to be as generous as you are. I want to serve you beyond comfort and an easy life. I want to continue to give beyond moments of laziness and discouragement.

    • “Listen!” “Pay attention!” Who does Jesus think I am? He knows that it is easy for people to become inattentive even to the very things that bring them life. I take this time to be attuned to my life and circumstances, listening for what God is saying to me.
    • In listening, hearing and following Jesus, I grow in familiarity with his voice and hear more as to what I have, more is added. I give thanks and I pray for those who have nothing, that they might take time with God who has such time for them.
