Got Salt?

13"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:113-16

You may have heard that old cliche, "not worth his salt". I don't ever want that to be said of me and my Christian walk. I posted these verses today as a simple reminder that others are depending upon us to be salty. Not like the old sailors, but like the Light of the world.
