Radiant inspiration

You just can’t hide inspiration. It’s like the sun, always shining.

It’s comforting to think that inspiration is what Jesus was referring to when he said: “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house” (Matthew 5:15). Jesus was such a practical teacher. When he referenced “light,” he wasn’t teaching his students about the wavelengths and nanometers of electromagnetic radiation; instead, it was like he was saying to them, “Just know that when you fully acknowledge the divine source of your blessings, your very life will radiate and glow, illuminating out to all like a light high in the sky.” After all, he had just recounted to them the richness of the God-bestowed blessings that were theirs no matter what they faced in life (see Matthew 5:1–12).
