"SABLOG"

Salt of the Earth

Image
One of the lessons in the FLET program describes how to prepare a biblical message. Saturday in Sablog, with three eager students, we went over the process and came up with the following from Matthew 5:13: “You are the salt of the earth.”

EXPLAIN THE BIBLE PASSAGE:
Fishermen, like Peter, would use salt to preserve fish, so that it wouldn’t spoil.

GIVE EXAMPLES IN DAILY LIFE:
In the mountains, what do we do to preserve potatoes, so that they won’t spoil? Keep them dry and fresh. What do we do to preserve milk? Boil it or make it into cheese. What about lima beans? Keep them fresh and dry.

APPLY THE PASSAGE TO OUR LIVES:
What do we do to preserve our youth to keep them from spoiling?
How is the church serving in the community to keep it from going bad?
It’s going to take a while to answer those questions.
