Being an agent of change is awkward
Often difficult to find yourself on the unpopular side of a conversation
Speaking when others would have you stay silent
Showing up when others have made bets you wouldn’t
Offering grace to those who don’t deserve it
Salt is not a meal on its own
And not a lot of it is needed,
Yet unmissable when absent
Like the people who aren’t afraid to push back or
Indeed there is such a thing as being “too salty”
But God forbid we ever live in a bland world
Devoid of people that care enough
To be salt.
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.
