"Jesus said to his disciples, 'You are the salt of the earth...'"
One of the best reflections I have read on this Gospel was in today's "Give Us This Day." Fr. Anthony Gittins mentions that an overdose of salt can be corrosive in our world and render food inedible...whoa, that! Just the right amount of salt is needed to flavor food delightfully. Fr. Gittins cautions against arrogantly over-powering others, instead following the example of Jesus, who gently and humbly lived his life with just the right amount salt and light. God of Flavor and Illuminating Light, help us in our interactions today to gently and humbly be your salt and light to the world. Help us to look around us and see those who are struggling under the weight of burdens we may not even see. Help us to be, not just salt and light, but also hands and feet to help our brothers and sisters. Help us to serve one another joyfully and giving all glory to You...Love, heidi
