Gene’s Daily Scriptural Postings


28 May 2024

Some see the world getting ever darker as a good thing because they believe that makes our light shine even brighter. Unfortunately that thinking has a couple problems. For one thing, it’s not in the Bible.


Plus, it makes no sense. Darkness only gets darker by withdrawing light. Otherwise the smallest flicker of light displaces darkness. The only way you can burn brighter while the world around you gets darker is by putting your light under a basket to separate it from the dark world. Jesus told us specifically not to do that.


If you have withdrawn into your church, and stay so busy there that you never interact with any unbelievers, it might be time to rethink some things.


You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. 

— Matthew 5:14-16 (HCSB)
