I've been giving Matthew 5:13-16 a lot of thought lately, especially since my post on Tuesday called I Wonder. Jesus tells his disciples, "You are the salt of the earth" and "You are the light of the world."
I can't help but wonder about who most Christians hang out with. I know that I prefer to be with my Christian friends vs. my friends that do not have a relationship with Christ. It's just easier, we have so much in common, we can talk about our relationship with Jesus. But, what does that really say about me? Am I being unfaithful? After all if I am to be like Jesus shouldn't I look at His example? What did He do while walking upon the earth? Who were His friends? Who did He socialize with? Did He stay in the temple and socialize with only those who were faithful? So what did He mean when He said for us to be salt and light?
These are the questions I am going to attempt to answer for myself and I've decided to share my journey with you. I am open to any discussion or insights you may have as long as it's "truth in love".
For fun I thought I'd close today with Chris Rice singing Go Light Your World.
