When Jesus taught his disciples about their roles and responsibilities in life He wanted them to realize that ultimately their lives would be put on display for everyone to see as an example. It is no different with us. How we live and the choices we make should be a positive example of who Jesus is and what He means to our lives.
Just like “salt” is used as a preservative and provides “flavor” and creates “thirst,” our choices in life should accomplish the same thing. Our lives should preserve the character of God. When we reflect his Character through our choices we will be like an attractive seasoning that will produce a spiritual thirst in the lives of others. People will be drawn to us and will crave what we have. This is how we are to shine our lights. Remember, God has a plan and purpose for our lives. Make a commitment today to fulfill God’s purposes in your life by shining his light through the choices you make.
Father, thank you for giving me a great plan and purpose for my life. Help me to shine your light through the choices I make. I want my life to reflect your character so that I can be the kind of example that will draw others to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
