I found this image while looking for some stuff to share with my middle-schoolers yesterday. I am sure you may have seen this design before, on t-shirts or on posters. Still it is a good reminder of our simple objective this week.
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its salty taste, it cannot be made salty again. It is good for nothing, except to be thrown out and walked on.
14 “You are the light that gives light to the world. A city that is built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 And people don’t hide a light under a bowl. They put it on a lampstand so the light shines for all the people in the house. 16 In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and will praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16(NCV)
And that leads me to my question for you to ponder. In what ways will you be a light for other people? How will others taste your saltiness? How will you ‘be these’?
