Transcript of Salt of the Earth, Light on a Hill

Salt of the Earth, Light on a Hill
Matthew 5:13-16
13 “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.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Idea 1
Salt of the earth...
What is salt used for? -Sustainability/ preserve
How are we as social workers sustaining and preserving our clients?
Food, Shelter, Emotional Support, Encouragement, etc.
If you have the opportunity to share the gospel: eternal sustainability
How can the church be involved with your specific population group? to preserve and sustain them literally and spiritually?

Idea 2
Light on a Hill
CANNOT be hidden. (you will naturally emulate Christ, a light)
Good Deeds visible?
They will see your Father, and glorify Him in response

In your chosen population (at-risk youth, AA, geriatric abuse, unwanted pregnancy, etc), how can the church shed light and be the salt both spiritually and literally? In both prevention and intervention?

Consider being the salt... at what point does it become enabling? Should the church be concerned with this?

Key Word: Influence
not words, but actions
