Bible Leads: Matthew 5:13

TEXT

Matthew 5:13

“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.


REFLECTION QUESTIONS

  1. What do you do to maintain your spirit?
  2. What does mean that you cannot be ‘salt of the earth’ apart from others?
  3. When have you observed a group of people ‘lose their saltiness’?
  4. Is Jesus being complimentary or pessimistic here?
