You are Light

I was browsing on the internet for tips to eating healthy when I came across this post. I was immediately reminded of the passage Salt and Light from Matthew 5: 13-15 which says,

"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house."

Have you gone through some serious soul searching when you asked the heavens, what is my purpose in life? Well, I did. And I believe this Bible passage is telling me much about that. 

You are salt and you are light. Without salt, eating would probably be dreadful. Without the sun, earth would be left an icy wasteland.

Personally, I think the passage is telling me to become a blessing to others. Like salt, I should help make the ordinary things become extraordinary. I should make this journey through life become less burdensome for the people traveling with me. In being light, we are made to guide each other in seeing the truth and seeing God in our journey.

Have an awesome week!
