Jesus said to his disciples, “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed."
Today, Jesus continues describing to us how Christian life should be like. We are like a lamp that burns and shines. But so that it shines brighter we have to place it on top of some furniture. Would it make any sense to light it and place it under the bed…? It would be absurd! And it is equally absurd that a Christian “hides” in spiritual tepidity: I do not cooperate but I am not bad either…
—Either I am good, or I am not useful. We have to be the light and joy of the world.
