Matthew 5: 13-16 (NASB)
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
It’s finally Friday and the weekend is just around the corner. How did this wild week go for you? Midweek holidays always throw me WAY off. I never can remember what day it is and am always in need of extra incentive to stay on track.
Earier this week we talked about what it means to be the salt of the earth. We understand it is of upmost importance to remain salty by keeping a fire burning in our walk with Christ and by maintaining the truthfulness of God’s word as we share it to those around us.
Now as we think of letting our light shine, we understand the importance of considering the way simple actions reflect the love of Christ. How do we reflect Christ’s love to the world? Are we showing enough compassion? Are we activating that forgiveness card as we should? How are we conducting ourselves when choosing the words we say or the actions we take?
A relationship with Christ is something too precious to keep hidden under a basket, don’t you think?
Have a wonderfully safe weekend!
Stay salty and shine on until we meet again!
