DG Book

Gospel: Matthew 5:13-16
You are the salt of the earth. But if salt has lost its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It has become useless.
It can only be thrown away and people will trample on it. You are the light of the world. A city built on a mountain cannot be hidden.
No one lights a lamp and covers it; instead, it is put on a lamp stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way,
your light must shine before others, so that they may see the good you do, and praise your Father in heaven.

LECTIO DIVINA:

Read: Isaiah enumerates practical ways to make us like a light that rises in the darkness, namely, to share our food with the hungry,
free the oppressed, and provide shelter for the homeless. Saint Paul exhorts the Corin­thians to have faith in God’s power and not on human wisdom.
He himself is the example; he preaches the mystery of God through the power of the Spirit, not through the lofty words of philosophers.
In his preaching, Jesus uses visual aids, which are close to the people’s daily life, namely, salt and light,
to underline the fundamental vocation and mission of his followers.

Reflect: Why does Jesus compare our vocation and mission to salt and light? The answer lies on what salt does to food and the importance of light in darkness.
Without salt, food is tasteless and it is easily spoiled. Without light, we cannot find the way.
We, Christians, are commissioned by the Lord to preach and live the good news of our salvation.
Our vocation and mission to be the salt of the earth and light of the world are gifts of Jesus to us. Without Jesus in our life,
we cannot become salt and light of the earth. Apart from him, we cannot produce fruits worthy of the kingdom. Our talents are gifts from God,
which are to be used for the uplifting of the people of God. By using our talents for the good of all, people can praise the heavenly Father.

Pray: Lord, thank you for the talents you have entrusted to me; may I use them for your glory and for the well-being of your people.

Act: Identify your talents and teach them to others.
