Salt & Light


“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:13-16



Have we brought out the God-flavor in the world around us or do we just settle for the world’s norms? Do we bring the light of salvation with us when we enter a room or join a group? Do we taste salty and does the world desire living water because of interaction with us? Have we hidden our God-given light under a bushel just to go down the path of least resistance?



Light a candle and find a salt shaker. Gaze at the light and notice how it pushes back the darkness.  Take just a very small pinch of salt and put it on your tongue. Could this be anything but salt? When the world experiences us, should it not say, could this be anything but a Christian?
