SALT and LIGHT
In today’s Gospel we hear of two scenarios where salt is concerned:
one is that we are called to be "salt of the earth". What salt does for
food, Christians are called to do for the world-to give life "taste".
You might recall someone who brought "taste" to your own life,
encouraging you on your journey, offering hope, a new insight or
project, someone you followed and learned from. What gifts did they
The other scenario in the Gospel today is where salt has lost its
taste-how can it be restored? You might recall someone you placed great
hope in, whether it be a family member, a public figure, a Church leader
or politician; someone who had vision and inspired others. Yet the
"salt" or the "taste" was lost. We see this all around us in our world,
when someone’s potential is lost.
There are many situations in our world today where people’s light is
not allowed to shine. It is controlled, hidden prevented from being used
for the benefit of all because of jealousy or perhaps others are afraid
of the consequences. Jesus tells us that these lights must shine, for
all, and then we can give glory to God in heaven for the fruits it may
produce. To help lights shine and to give flavour to the world is our
task today. Another way of putting it might be: how are the effects of
our encounter with Jesus Christ evident in our lives?
