You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt has lost its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It has become useless. It can only be thrown away and people will trample on it.
You are the light of the world; A city built on a mountain cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and covers it; instead, it is put on a lamp stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, your light must shine before others, so that they may see the good you do, and praise your Father in heaven.
POINT OF REFLECTION
All of us are borne to be the “the salt of the earth and the light of the world.” All are borne with the necessary potentials according to the plan of God. Perhaps one of the greatest responsibility God has given to us, is to discover and bring to the topmost functionality every hidden talent and skills He has given to us. And for all this goodness, it is therefore right and proper for us to repay Him by using our talent and skills to glorify His kingdom on earth.
We will use all we have so that the world would appreciate the goodness of God in us. Make it to the point that the world sees God in us, Christian, through our talent and skills. May everyone shine in the light of Jesus as we use our talent and skills to touch lives and bring back to Jesus His lost Sheep.
In conclusion my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, all are bestowed with the gift of wonderful talent and skills upon birth. Our greatest responsibility is to hone it and use the same to further His kingdom on earth.
