Parable of the Lamp
16 “Now no one lights a lamp and then covers it with a container [to hide it], or puts it under a bed; instead, he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light.
17 For there is nothing hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come out into the open.
18 So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”
19 Then Jesus’ mother and His brothers came up toward Him, but they could not reach Him because of the crowd.
20 And He was told, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, asking to see You.”
21 But He answered, “My mother and My brothers are these who listen to the word of God and do it!”Luke 8:16-21 (AMP)
