Faith in Focus: Salt and Light

(Matthew 5:13-16)
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

  1. Don’t be self-righteous (“There is no one righteous, no not one”, Roman 3:10)
  2. Stop trying to control others
  3. Use Discretion in Confrontations (“The discretion of a man delays his anger; and it is his glory to overlook a transgression.”,  Proverbs 19:11)
  4. Learn to listen better
  5. Resign from the bench (“Judge not, that you be not judged”,  Matt 7:1)
  6. Forgive
  7. Refuse to retaliate as you prioritize your faith over your feelings (“All things work together for the good“, Romans 8:28)
  8. Refuse to play their game
  9. Maintain humility by esteeming others rather than yourself (“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.“, Philippians 2:3-4)
