What do light and salt have in common? Both can make quite a difference in things and are very much missed when not present. In addition to that, Jesus used them to describe our Christian lives! We are called to light the world with the hope of Jesus, and to be "salt", making a difference in the lives of others. This lesson describes how light and salt impact things, and how we can influence others with God's love.

We want to encourage students to be “salt and light”, making a difference in the lives of those around them. Yet the way they can make that impact comes first from recognizing how much Jesus changes us. He is the light that guides our way, and it’s because of His light that we can shine for others. He is the “salt” in our lives, flavoring and preserving us to great things for His kingdom. As you encourage young students, be sure to emphasize the blessings we have been given in Christ!

            Great material and craft ideas for teaching this lesson. The children were very tentative, understood the lesson and enjoyed putting the craft together to tell the story.
