Read with me, Matthew 5:13-16…”Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 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. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Have you ever thought about the significance of Jesus’ words in these verses? Light, of course, illuminates all it touches and brings openness and clarity otherwise shrouded by darkness.
But what about salt? Well, it is an added “season” to a meal you make.. Okay, some put too much salt, but that is another topic! 🙂 Isn’t this what the Scriptures do? They “season” our lives with the rich goodness of God’s love and mercy. They take away much of the bitterness that impedes the joy and spiritual abundance He so freely and willingly offers.
