Salt and Light
Last week, Jesus began his Sermon on the Mount with a job description telling us to be about justice work, about love, and kindness. In the scripture today, Jesus is continuing his sermon. You are salt of the earth. You are light of the world. You act like salt by making life better for those around you. Similarly, you are light; a floodlight on unjust systems, or providing warmth in a world filled with fear and hatred. Even the tiniest amount of salt or the tiniest candle flame affects others. We are already that. God calls you to be you.
