the basket

matthew 5:14-16

"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

i read this while i was with the church on sunday.
the pastor wasn't preaching through this section,
but the Spirit brought it to my attention.

instant conviction.

i have allowed the light of the Lord that dwells in me
to be put under a basket.

the worst part:
i put the basket there myself.

the hard part:
how do i get the basket off?

Lord, by your pefect grace and power, help me take the basket off this light.
