its savor. *n those days salt was
very Imperfectly made. It was some
times mixed with large proportions
of other mineral matter which was
not separated after the grinding.
Sometimes it was made by burning
certain plants, as the Africans do at
this day, and the larger part of it
would be ashes. If left in a rain, the
salt would be leeched out and only
the refuse left, which was worthless,
though it might still have the gen
eral appearance of salt. Let us see
to it that our religion Is not washed
out and that we do not become use
Our Saviour also says: "Ye are
the light of the world." In another
place he says: "I am the light of
the world." It is an interesting fact
that he used two different Greek
words, both of which are translated
"light." The one referring to him
self means "original light," that Is,
light that conies from the shining ob
ject itself. The other means reflected
light. The light of the sun is orig

inal, that of the moon is reflected.
The light of the sun falling upon
a mirror is reflected and may be
thrown into a dark place, where the
direct rays of the sun do not go.
The amount of light reflected depends
upon the character and condition of
the mirror. If it is smoothly polished
and clean it will reflect almost the
whole light that falls upon it. But
it may be so covered with dirt that It
will reflect no light at all. The
amount of light that we reflect will
depend upon the amount of sin that
is in our hearts and lives.
Sometimes people think that their
light is so small that it does not
amount to much. The spark on the
end of a match stem when the blazo
has gone out will give enough light
to show the way across a dark room.
The flame Af the light-house lamp is
not large, but it sends its beams a
long way out into the darkness and
guides the mariner so that he can
avoid the rocks and go safely tnto
A vessel was caught in a very se
vere storm on one of our Great North
ern Lakes. One of the passengers,
frightened* by the darkness and the
tempest, asked the pilot if he thought
he could carry the ship safely into
the harbor. He replied: "Yes, if
the lower light is burning." When
asked what he meant, he said: "There
is a light-house up on the hill and I
can see its light. When I get beyond
this point of land I ought to be able
to see a light down on the shore. If
that is burning I can get my line
from the two and guide the ship safe
ly between the rocks." God is shin
ing up on high. We are the lower
lights, and our light is needed by
those in the darkness of sin.
In Matt. 28:18, 20 our Saviour tells
us how we can get all needed help
for living as he would have us live
and doing what he has commanded
us to do. "All power is given unto
me . . . lo, I am with you always."
The power is his and he is with us
to give us the help we need, if we
will only let him do so.
