salt and light


Daily reflections: Tuesday: June 10/14


Gospel: Matthew 5:13... Jesus uses many examples of everyday life to show people how they can live an authentic life and be a force for good. In today\'s gospel he uses words like, salt of the earth, the light of the world, and then he goes on to say; ”let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father.” In this passage Jesus use the terms of salt which enhances the taste of life, light of the world which dispels darkness, and good works, which are all indicative of the way of life is incongruous with the teachings of Jesus. It\'s up to each one of us to decide how we are soul, light, and good works.


Reflection: as you reflect on your lifestyle can you really name and see how your life or salt or good works?


Prayer, Jesus the teacher, you were both salt and light and good works and as a result to show how a person embodying the Holy Spirit will live their life. I intend to imitate you. I intend to be salt and light and good works as guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Amen
