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.
We should ask God each and every day to make us "Salt and Light." As Christians, we must remain "salty" and "bright" for Christ. Salt adds flavor and has healing powers. Brightness lights the world, even when things seem to be darkest. We are expected to continually show others our love and faith in Christ. It is by example that we best reach our friends, classmates, and teachers that we come in contact with on a daily basis.
