Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5,13-16
Jesus said to his disciples: “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”
You are light. SHINE !
1)You are the salt: Salt is there to add flavour. But it must be just the right touch, otherwise you can ruin the taste , and even cause hypertension! In life, you have to add flavour; you have to manage the right balance; any excess is bad… Learn that no excess is good for you, but also, learn to savor life; let your life gives flavor to those around you. When you live with good taste it’s nice for others to know you and be with you.
2) You are light: When you enjoy life and you enjoy living, you become light to others.
You illuminate and you know how to bring others out of their darkness. Pray for the light; you can’t give what you don’t have. Look at that light that you have and transmit it; I assure you that you will bring many out of darkness. Now I remind you, in order to shine you need that the electric socket of “helping others”, and the voltage (220v ) in prayer !
3) Bring out the light, don’t hide it. Don’t believe what people say about you; believe what God says about you. You are His child, and remember what he created you for. So keep going… you are more than a lamp, you are a SPOTLIGHT !! Maybe those around you have made you believe that you are a dim lamp on a side table. No. You are a bright spotlight, so light up and SHINE !
God-bless you in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Heaven is our goal !
