Irritate and Burn

Salt and light. That is what we are to be. Light draws people in and salt makes things taste better. The pros. But have you considered the cons? Light exposes and salt stings. We are to be both salt and light in both of its uses. Your light (living righteously in your actions) will irritate the eyes of those living in darkness. Your salt (speaking words of truth) will burn and sting the souls of those living in sin. We must remember to act in love towards others but never shy away from the truth when the Holy Spirit presents us with the opportunity to do so.

Matthew 5:13-16

  1. So so true I pray all the time for the Holy Spirit’s help to be the salt so others become thirsty for Him. Love this Jen
