DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Lamp to Shine” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus uses the image of a “lamp” that must shine to brighten the surrounding darkness.  Likewise, we are infinitely blessed with the gift of faith as we are called to “shine” and witness Jesus in our daily living, especially during the great trials in our lives.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 4:21-25

Jesus said to the crowd: ‘Would you bring in a lamp and put it under a tub or under the bed? Surely to be put on the lamp-stand? For there is nothing hidden, but it must be disclosed, nothing kept secret except to be brought to light. Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!’

He also said to them, ‘Take notice of what you are hearing. The standard you use will be used for you — and you will receive more besides; anyone who has, will be given more; anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has.’
