Praise the Lord for Five Minute Friday! Why, you ask my dear reader? Well, I am learning a lesson on what it means to be a Jesus blogger and temporary Mama. I offered to watch a friend’s two little precious girls overnight so they are currently ankle deep in toys in my living room watching Tangled.
Needless to say– my attention is a bit divided.
On that note, time to get down to business… Of Fridays I link up with The Gypsy Mama. She gives us a one word prompt, and we write like the wind for five minute. No over thinking, no editing.
Today’s prompt: LIGHT
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.”Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” –Matthew 5:13-16 (MSG)
What does it mean for YOU to be the salt and the light of the earth? That’s a great question and I am discovering it for myself daily. Call me an informal Friday slacker… But I don’t think it is any accident that I spent the better part of yesterday morning walking around belting out the song “Salt and Light” by Jami Smith. So today, I would like to share that video. (Of Jami singing it… not me. I really don’t want me first vlog to be me with fuzzy hair in PJ’s singing a very-low octave song.
Tell someone about Jesus today– be the salt and the light! And don’t forget to enjoy this video!
Now if you will excuse me… I am on a pancake-making mission for these little ones… and it’s getting to my favorite part of Tangled– can’t miss it! 🙂
Keeping it Bright and Salty,
“Salt is excellent. But if the salt goes flat, it’s useless, good for nothing. “Are you listening to this? Really listening?”– Luke 14:34
