To make disciples of all Nations, starting at home!
We should be bringing people into the Kingdom of God through helping them find faith in Christ's sacrifice resulting in salvation through grace. PLUS, we should be loving our neighbor as ourselves. Loving our neigbor means that as salt, the influence of God should permeate all dimensions of society:
Education - that truth and knowledge are passed on..
Civic - that laws supporting good and right behavior are passed and upheld
Entertainment - that wholesome, family supporting programming is available
The outcome of salt moving through the various areas of culture in our communities and nation is a Healthy Society for ourselves, our familes and others.
Contributing to healthy socities in one act of making disciples of all Nations, starting at home!

Amen!
