Daily Word Of God
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘No one lights a lamp to cover it with a bowl or to put it under a bed. No, he puts it on a lamp-stand so that people may see the light when they come in. For nothing is hidden but it will be made clear, nothing secret but it will be known and brought to light.
‘So take care how you hear; for anyone who has will be given more; from anyone who has not, even what he thinks he has will be taken away.’
