How does the light in us become darkness? It becomes darkness when we are afraid to shine it into the world around us.
In Luke it says, "No one lights a lamp and puts it in a secret place or under a bowl, but on a lamp stand so the people who come in can see” Luke 11:33-34 (NCV).
Is your light on a lamp stand or under a basket? Don’t let fear cause you to hide the light that is in you.
