5:13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people. 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden. 5:15 People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.
We are to be salt and light to the world. Salt has many important qualities. It preserves, it heals, it flavors. We are to be salt to the world. Through seeing our lives and our faith others should be preserved and healed. As we rub shoulders with others in our everyday lives, we should be a light that points them to the Father and gives honor to him. The world is in darkness. We should be a light that reveals sin and point others to the savior.
