Salt and light are powerful images in Scripture. Salt gives flavor and preserves. As the soul is to the body, so the Christian is to the world.

Are we willing to see ourselves as sent by God into the world for a purpose? As necessary as a soul is to a body, so is a Christian to the world’s sanctification.

Gracious god, help me to lift up those when I encounter. May I be willing to be used as a force for good in my interactions with others today.
