Daily Word Of God

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.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • A lamp gives light of itself. It lights up all the surrounding area, illuminating every part of the room that is within its reach.


  • Similarly, the Lord calls us to share of ourselves with those around us.


  • The more we give, the more we will receive. Let us pray for the grace to give ourselves to all people as God wills it.



  • How is the Lord challenging you to deepen your faith in your daily living so that it will bring a “rich harvest” that God wants to give you?
