Our conversations and our lifestyles speak loudly to a world in decay and darkness. So Jesus called us to be both salt and light (Matt. 5:13-14). How can my conversations become salt today, preserving and purifying? How can my lifestyle become a light to someone stumbling in darkness, in need of illumination and guidance? Remember, Jesus did not beg us to become salt and light. To act as a preserver and illuminator of my culture, in Jesus’ name, is both my responsibility and privilege.
