Light of The World, Salt of The Earth


God admonished us to become the light of the world and the salt of the earth. Why? Because there's so much darkness in this world that people are groping for the true light that will illuminate their perilous paths through life. Man's life has been so drab and tasteless that God needs people to become the salt of the earth to give flavor to an otherwise tasteless existence of mankind. Man has lost his true perspective in life. Man has associated himself with worldly pursuits in life where everybody else wants to get ahead and to be on top at the expense of others. It does not matter whether he steps on the lives of so many people just so he can reach the summit of success, fame and fortune. But once he reaches the top, man realizes that it is so lonely up there, bereft of the true happiness and contentment in life.

Yes, God needs more people to become a light of the world and a salt of the earth. Would you rather be included in the Guinness Book of World Records or in God's Book of Life? Think about it, my friend.

It's so true na madami talaga nabubulag sa fame and fortune. Yung mga sumisikat sinasabi lumalaki na daw ang ulo. Naisip ko nga kung natural lang ba yun? Di ko kasi alam kung ano feeing ng nasa taas kaya ngayon pa lang, dapat ko na iready ang sarili ko baka sakali manalo kami sa lotto.. sana wag magbago ang ugali ko. Pero syempre if we have fear in the Lord, di naman siguro magbabago ang outlook sa buhay. Thanks for this post SIr Mel :) Happy weekend

Hi Bambie dear,
If our focus is in the Lord, nothing much can affect us in life because we know that all things are transient except God who is immutable. The Bible says, the love of money is the root of all evils. So we must not attach ourselves to money that we lose our scruples in life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
