To be salt and light is who we are by God’s grace, and that grace flows from us to others. Although we may have to grit our teeth sharing grace, I hope we do good
as a response God’s grace bestowed upon us . Like salt, we may be invisible to the world at large but collectively we have a powerful influence that glorifies not ourselves, but our heavenly Father.
We, the followers of Christ, have become beacons of light and hope in the midst of a world full of strife and hatred. We do not become beacons of light by tooting own horns. Rather, by our quiet humble presence we have become lights who shine God’s love and compassion in the darkness around us (Matthew 5:13-16).
