Daily REFLECTION by Inam Cyril


Salt And Light

Jesus said “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world.”  Matthew 5:13-14. Have you ever pondered what it means to be salt or light in this world? These two entities are very important in our lives, hence Jesus used them demonstrated what our lives should be. Our lives should influence and seasons people’s life. Salt seasons and add taste food. Imagine you cooking wonderful vegetable soup without adding salt how it will taste. The same is it with light. Light illuminates the world, seasons and give meaning to our lives. Imagine yourself being lost in the forest and darkness covers, how you will feel? Walking in darkness without light is very dangerous. We need the light to see and fine are ways in darkness. As we need both the physical and spiritual light to enlighten us. These two images provide us with the importance of “just a little salt and little light.” It means that in life and in the world just a little changes everything. Those minute things you ignored and take for granted, matters a lot in life. They bring changes, new innovations, growth and developments. So it is with us in our faith.  The world we live in is dark in so many ways.  The “flavor” of love and mercy is quite void.  God is calling you to add that little flavor and produce that little light so that others can find their way.   Like the moon, you are not the source of light.  You only reflect the light.  God wants to shine through you and he wants you to reflect his light.  As God is calling us to be salt and light may we be open to him to use us in his own chosen way through Christ our Lord, Amen. “YOU ARE THE LIGHT”
