Salt And Light

Cut salt out of your life completely for 1 week. I dare you! You may not make it a day! Most of us are so used to eating salted food, that when removed, food just doesn’t taste right.

The same thing is true with light. Can you imagine living in the dark all the time? A cloudy week where you don’t see the sun is hard enough! Once you know how much good light can brighten your day, it’s hard to imagine living in the dark.

This week at Living Shepherd, we’re going to take a look at another portion of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount. In it, he says, ““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 by men. “You are the light of the world. A city 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 men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16)

As we go through Jesus’ words, we’ll take a look at who he was talking to, what he meant, why it matters and will consider what it looks like to be salt and light while living in this world.

God’s blessings on your weekend and hope to see you Sunday!
