Salt and Light

Matthew 5:13-16
Salt and Light

“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 underfoot.

“You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

 

My daughter came home one day from her first week in High School and asked if we could go see her old teachers in Jr. High.  My daughter said she needed to go see a certain teacher who told her that she was the salt and the light.

See my daughter has attended a private Christian school for all her life. The last couple of years she had a couple of the best teachers, who really spoke into her life. Encouraged her tremendously.

 

We visited them and it was great to see her feel like she belonged, greet her teachers and pray with them.

 

Its not easy being a Christian girl and going to public school for the first time.

 

As her Mommy I just want to keep her safe, but I know I have to let her work through all this. Today she said that everything has changed from Jr. High to High School. I said.. yep it is a season. God always uses the prior season to get you ready for the next. She said than that last season is helping me a lot cause this is hard.

 

Life is tasteless without salt!

In addition to providing seasoning, it is a component of your blood, sweat and tears and is essential to the proper function of the human body.

Be SALT and LIGHT!

 

Christ is the LIGHT that shines through you.

Your blood…who you are, where you come from, your heritage. Your sweat …the hard work you do, the things your afraid of, the things you persevere through. Your tears…worries, hurts, pressure.

 

So basically… BE YOU!~

Let Christ’ LIGHT shine through the realness of who you are – !!! 

Shine

All you are

Life experience

Trials and joys
