Bible: Matt 5:13-17

Salt and Light

5:13You are the salt 1  of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, 2  how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people. 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden. 5:15 People 3  do not light a lamp and put it under a basket 4  but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.

Fulfillment of the Law and Prophets

5:17Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them. 5
