The LORD provides us with visual images throughout His Word to help us to understand His intent; in this verse we’re given the lamp and light to compare to His commandments and the law of His Word. As we take His Word into our lives we grow in wisdom and store up the treasures offered. Just as a lamp holds the wick and oil for the light needed as shadows overtake the day; so is His Word as we are faced with trials, accountabilities, and ministering to others. The light or the laws of His Word are those things we learn that feed the flame of our hearts so that others will have the light of his law and the light of understanding.
Remember as you go through this day that His Word should go with you where ever you go; just as you would carry a lamp into a darkened room; we too enter the world lost in darkness and we have both the lamp and the light they need.
