“You are the salt of the earth... You are the light of the world...”
Salt gives flavor to food and light brightens one’s path--shines in the dark to be seen by all, just like a beacon that guides the ships to port. Is your salt still flavorful? Or has it lost its flavor?
What happens when we lose our flavor? We become lukewarm, we drift away, careless in our beliefs, slip away into sin and darkness, sluggish in spiritual practices. Salt without flavor is no longer good for anything except to be trampled or thrown away.
Are we still salt that’s full of flavor and love for the Lord? And seen as a light in the dark for others ? A beacon to guide others? Let us ask Mama Mary to help us define our mission in life and carry on as true disciples.
