Salt and Light


Salt enhances flavor.  Do we enhance the lives of those around us?  Light dispels darkness. Do we walk in the light of Christ?

Jesus said to his disciples:
“You are the salt of the earth.
But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned?
It is no longer good for anything
but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world.
A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;
it is set on a lampstand,
where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your heavenly Father.”

What could we accomplish if we recognized that we are the light of the world?  How many brothers and sisters could be saved if only our lives reflected the flavor of our faith?
