Question of the Week – February 5

It is common for us in our times to be careful about the salt we use. However, in Jesus’ day, salt was a very important commodity. It was used to pay salaries. Like us, people used salt to flavor food. But, because there was no refrigeration, salt was also used to preserve food. That is why, when Jesus called his disciples “salt” and “light,” he declared their great importance. What was of significant importance to Jesus was the enthusiasm with which the disciples spread the Good News.

Adults: In what way might you be hiding the light of Christ from others? What could you do to improve this?

Children: How can you let the light of Christ in you sine for others this week?
