Light your candle! Cast off your bushel!

From the April 1993 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Quite obviously, if a person went around with a bushel basket on his head, the world would seem pretty dark! But who would do such a thing? It may be a twist on Christ Jesus' intended message to think of a person putting a basket over his or her head, but that's a picture that has presented itself to my thought. Of course, when Jesus 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," he was talking about his followers being "the light of the world,"   Matt.
