Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Passage
Matt. 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how
shall its saltness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be
thrown out and trodden under foot by men. 14 "You are the light of the
world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Nor do men light a lamp and
put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and
give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
1. Jesus calls us the “salt of the earth.” Why? What was salt meant to do? How are Christians supposed to be this type of
salt on earth?

2. Jesus calls us “the light of the world.” But he also says in St. John’s Gospel,
“I am the Light of the World.” How can he and us both be the light of the
world? What is the relationship between His light and our light?

3. Jesus says that our light should shine before others so that others, in seeing
our good deeds, might praise God. Are you enthusiastic in living your faith, so
that others might see your faith and praise God? If so, how?
