Daily Thought: Seasoning The World

"Indeed, if we separate ourselves wholly from sinners, how could we possibly answer that character which Jesus requires in His other teachings?  'You are the salt of the Earth.' It is your very nature to season whatever is around you.  It is the nature of your faith to spread it to whatever you touch.  You diffuse it on every side to all those around you.  In relationship to others, you are lowly, serious, and meek.  You show that you hunger after righteousness, and love God and man.  In doing that you do good to all, and often suffer evil in return.  This is the great reason why God has put you together with other men.  It is so that whatever grace you have received from God, you may communicate it to others." ~ John Wesley, The Sermon on the Mount, p. 126
