The first parables of Jesus recorded by Matthew are found in Matthew 5:13-16. Jesus tells His listeners that they are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
Today as South Africa goes to the polls in the local government elections, we have the opportunity to be salt and light.
Use the time as you stand in the queue to bring flavour to those around you by being positive and encouraging. Be the light to the world by letting the light of Jesus Christ shine through you, reflecting His love, grace and peace.
"I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
Have a good day.
