Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - Matthew 5:13-16

Read 214 Times

Matthew 5:13-16

Jesus used the image of salt as something that makes food tasty. Without salt food can be tasteless. Who are the people who give zest to your life and make it enjoyable? For whom have you done this? When have you been particularly aware of your potential in this regard?

The second image is that of light. Who have been the people who have been a light for you, in particularly in moment s of darkness. For whom have you been a light? Recall these experiences and give thanks.

The image of salt and light can also be applied to communities to which we belong, a family, a parish, or other group. Thinking of the groups of which you are a member, how can their potential be enhanced to enrich the lives of members and offer them a guiding light? How can you make a contribution to this?
