Sunday Night Live: Be the Salt and Light in your Corner of the World

Scripture for Sunday Night

Matthew 5: 13-16

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.

Salt – Natural salt which purifies, cleanses, and preserves from corruption

Salt – Having a quality of effectiveness

Light – Bearers of illumination

the use of salt here is as a flavoring agent: “if salt has become tasteless”

Either of the main functions of salt, as flavour or as preservative, fits the image. The rabbis used salt as a symbol for wisdom (loses its saltiness is lit. ‘becomes foolish’)
