What difference are you making today?

Quote of the Day:

In light of Jesus words recorded in Matthew 5:13 calling Christians to be the "salt of the earth," Helyer explains, "Salt served as a preservative in a time before refrigeration was invented. Just as salt is essential for preserving food, especially meat products, so disciples are essential for preserving a just and compassionate society. This is accomplished by upholding the moral and ethical values of the kingdom. Without the goldy influence of kingdom citizens, society tends toward moral anarchy. The story of how Christianity transformed Western civilization does not generally recieve the recognition it deserves." (in The Witness of Jesus, Paul, and John, page, 169, 2008)
