Matthew 5.13-16 – March 14, 2020

Matthew 5.13-16

“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.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
 (Matthew 5:13–16, NIV)

Like salt and light, what ways are you bringing change into the world around you?

Thought Questions:

Why do people use salt? In what ways do you sense your life “seasons” those around you for God?

How have you seen a little bit of light, that is, just a small act of kindness or love for someone else, change them in big, powerful, and perhaps even unimaginable ways?

How can you shine your light on others today?
