Sunday, October 4: Consider carefully how you listen


Read Luke 8:16-18

"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them."


What do you think Jesus means when he says, "Therefore consider carefully how you listen"? How does that relate to the end of this passage?


Lord, help us, to whom you have given light, to be responsible to put that light on a stand and bring it out into the open. May we pass along to others the blessing you've given to us. Amen.
