Salt and light our Saviour calls us,
Salt and light so we must be,
Sharing hope and truth with others
With our love and empathy.

Salt and light our Saviour named us,
Pure and honest we must be,
oil-lamp-from-ancient-timesConsecrate our days to Jesus
So God’s kingdom we will see.

Salt and light we must be bearing,
Pain and hatred to confound.
It’s God’s love that we are sharing;
Spread it gently all around.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really something that I feel I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I’m having a look forward to your subsequent publish, I will try to get the grasp of it!

    • Thank you for your comment, Alex. This is how I interpret being “salt and light”. Salt gives flavour to food and it also helps preserve it. As believers, we can add flavour to someone’s life by giving them hope through our helpful actions and also through our words of encouragement. The words of the gospel are reassuring and comforting and therefore bring hope and joy to others. Light enables us to see clearly and so we give light to others by our compassionate actions and also through our belief in God. When we share our experiences of God and our understanding of the gospels it will enlighten them, but we need to do it with respect and gentleness. I hope this helps.
      M.P.M.
