Salt and Light - Matthew 3:13-16

(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.  (15) Neither 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.  (16) In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  

Stay salty and effective for the Lord.  It takes courage to step out of that comfort zone and accomplish what God has set out for you to do. I know.  I've been there and I know how it feels.   When we remember that it's all about glorifying God; giving him credit for the blessings in life, then it becomes easier to allow our light to shine.  By shining our light we not only keep ourselves from stumbling in the dark, we also help those having trouble keeping their own light aglow.
Do you remember the song "this little light of mine - I'm gonna let it shine"?  You may perceive your own light to be a "little light", but to some one stumbling in the dark, groping for something to hold onto, it may be the light that brings them to the greatest Light of all.  Shine, shine, shine!

Have a wonderful day and let your light shine!  In Christian love, Nan
