"You are the salt of the earth and light of the world."

The salt of God's kingdom for all
Jesus used the image of salt to describe the transforming effect of God's work in our lives - and how the Holy Spirit wants to work through us to bring the power and blessing of God's kingdom to others. As salt purifies, preserves, and produces rich flavor for our daily food, we, too, as disciples of Jesus, are "salt" for the world of human society. The Lord wants to work in and through us to purify, preserve, and spread the rich flavor of God's kingdom everywhere - his "kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit" (Romans 14:17).

Light that shines for all to see
Jesus used the image of a lamp to describe how his disciples are to live in the light of his truth and love. Just as natural light illumines the darkness and enables one to see visually, so the light of Christ shines in the hearts of believers and enable us to see the heavenly reality of God's kingdom. Our mission is to be light-bearers of Jesus Christ so that others may see the truth of the gospel and be freed from the blindness of sin and deception.

There is great freedom and joy for those who live in the light of God's truth and goodness. Do you know the joy and freedom of living in God's light?
"Lord Jesus, you guide mc by the light of your saving truth. Fill my heart and mind with your light and truth and free me from the blindness of sin and deception that I may see your ways clearly and understand your will for my life. May I radiate your light and truth to others in word and deed", copyright © 2020 Servants of the Word, source: www.dailvscripture.net, author Don Schwager

A boy asked his father: - Dad, what is the size of God?
Then the father looked up at the sky and saw a plane and asked his son:
- What is the size of this plane?
The boy replied:
- it is very small. I can hardly see it.
Then, the father too him to the airport and as they approached a plane, he asked:
- Now, my Son, how big is this plane? The boy replied:
- Wow Dad, it's huge! Then the father told him:
- God's size depends on how closc or far you are to him. The closer you are to him, the Greater and Greater he will be in your life!
