Luke 8:16-18

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.”

Last week, I met an interesting person. As she shared with me her life story, one particular line struck me. She was speaking about her own faith and sharing it with others: “The more I shared, the more it grew; the more I shared, the more I received.”

In today’s gospel reading, Jesus is not talking about a person’s gifts or talents; he is speaking about faith. Our faith is not meant to be hidden; it is meant to be seen. When we share our faith with other people, we discover that it grows with each telling, so that we have more to share in future.
