A Chance to be Salt & LightMonday, September 09, 2013
Daily I finish my day worn out - I've spent the whole day caring for my family to the best of my abilities. I should feel satisfied by that fact, if not joyful over it. However, there are many days when I feel a little sad because I wasn't serving anyone outside of my family. I have written on how I do feel that moms have their first "mission" field in the house, and I do still believe that.
There is just a feeling that maybe I should have done something else! Do you know what I mean?
And then a group of ladies I study with went over Matthew 5:13-16
And of course the follow up is how do we, as moms, as bloggers, act like salt? Light?
"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.
I know there are many discussion on how to be salt and how to be light. And many of them are wonderful.
But for those of us who are honorably filling our days caring for our little fields of families, what tiny step can we do?
Well Ashley and myself, have decided to host a weekly (might end up being bi-weekly) link up for us to shine a little light. The hope is that when you come across a post that touches you, that speaks to your soul, you will link it up here.
We come across amazing posts regularly, and love sharing them, mostly on facebook, once in awhile they might be featured in a special post... but often those amazing posts go unnoticed by too many.
So let's search out those little lights shining for Jesus and help put them up on a stand so that they might shine more brightly.
As far as being salt - have you written a great post about your purpose? Your stance on faith? Your struggles with faith? Share those, as personal faith stories give great encouragement and strength to others.
Help up us build a community that is full of salt and light for others!
