Fifth Sunday in Ordinary TimeFebruary 6, 2011
WE ARE THE SALT & LIGHT OF THE WORLD
How many of you have ever tried a salt-free diet? (Yuck. Because salt is what gives food flavor. It is what makes food taste good)
We are the salt of the world – we make the world good. Now, I recognize that most people don’t think of Christian living this way. A lot of people look at Christians and say, “how boring”
As salt of the earth, we are meant to bring flavor to what we see around us. We are meant to preserve the goodness of this earth. It is your example, your good word, you love that will preserve and increase the goodness that is already around us.
