Jesus uses the similes of salt and light to help His disciples see how important their perspective and lifestyle is to others. Every follower of Jesus is called to imitate Him – to be salt for life and light in the world.

Do my words and deeds help others or hinder them? Do I operate as a light or am I an experience of darkness for others? How seriously do I take my vocation?

Dear God, strengthen me to serve others today. May I set an example for my fellow disciples and see their success in holiness as my own.
