Matthew 5:14-16

Salt and Light

14 l "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 m Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so n that they may see your good works and o give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
