With Independence day coming up, Matthew 5:13-16 really has been standing out to us.
“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.
How cool is it that in our country, we have freedom to do this. We have freedom to be the salt and light of the earth unlike the majority of the world. Nothing is stopping us! So many times I think its easy to take for granted this freedom that we have been SO blessed with. This year don't forget to be thankful and praise the Lord extra for the abundant blessings He has lavished onto us. He is GOOD!
