Salt, Light and Burnt Popcorn Part 2

Leave a comment

Yesterday, we looked at some burnt-popcorn looking blooms, and talked a bit about salt.

Today, I’d like to discuss light. ^^^

Salt and Light, but mostly light.

As as we learned yesterday about salt, a little goes a long way to give flavor and savor to bland, tasteless things. But tasteless salt is good for nothing.

Regarding light, let’s look first at that verse I promised you: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

If part of that sounded familer, it’s probably due to the popular Sunday School song “This Little Light of Mine”. If you grew up in church, you probably heard that one (a LOT. Right up there with the B-I-B-L-E, am I right?) but there’s a reason they taught you the song! We’re meant to live that. Matthew Henry put it this way, “As the lights of the world, they are intended to illuminate and give light to others”, “the gospel is so strong a light, and carries with it so much of its own evidence, that, like a city on a hill, it cannot be hid, it cannot but appear to be from God, to all those who do not wilfully shut their eyes against it.”

Hope you’re both salt and light to all those around you today! Be SHARP and do the BRIGHT thing!
