Day 4 – One Year Bible Reading:

Matthew 5:13,14

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”

Life’s journey with all its unpredictable events that get thrown at us, has a way of dimming our light and minimizing our effectiveness. We can easily lose sight of the purpose of our being on earth. The mission becomes lost in the busyness of everyday responsibilities. We lose our flavor and our flame. Fasting in the beginning of this year can restore the saltiness and also fan the flame. Our presence in this world is meant to make a difference. Let the earth feel the impact of your prayer and fasting. You add something to other people’s lives. They need what’s on the inside of you. Many people experience the blandness of their existence. You are the salt that makes life worth living. Far too many live in darkness. You are the light that opens the blinded eyes to the possibilities of living a life filled with meaning and purpose and joy. Thanks for going through the changes of fasting. Someone’s world will be better because you decided to skip some meals. And you will be more fulfilled, more focused, more in touch with heaven than ever before.
