Jesus says we are to be the salt and light of the world. What’s interesting is how often we mis-take his words to mean our primary job is to call out others over their shortcomings. What Jesus is really saying, however, is more about us than them. We cannot be salt for others if we have lost our saltiness, and we cannot be light for others if we hide our light under a bowl. This means our primary job really is to make sure we stay salty and lit, which can only happen if we stay humble, deeply in touch with God and strive to be faithful Jesus-followers. In turn, this forces us to ask ourselves a challenging question. Are we really ready to grow in grace, strive to become perfect in love and seek holiness?
