“Your lives are like salt among the people. But if you, like salt, become bland, how can your ‘saltiness’ be restored? Flavourless salt is good for nothing and will be thrown out and trampled on by others.
Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?
And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light.
So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”
