Adam’s Devotional – May 9-14, 2019

From Adam…


What if loneliness is a sign you’re doing something right? You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world.  That’s what Jesus said. Salt seasons. If you put all the salt in the same spot it’s not going to taste very good. If you put all the candles in your house in the same place, only one room will be lit up. Salt and light only work well when they are spread out. In other words, salt and light need to be alone to function properly.  Have you ever felt lonely because of your faith? Have you ever felt different because of the way you practice compassion? Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit in because of the way you receive and offer God’s grace? Could it be that loneliness in those circumstances is a sign that we are actually practicing our faith? Perhaps loneliness in those moments means we are loving others the way Christ loves us. It takes courage to be salt.  It takes courage to be light. It takes courage to risk loneliness for the sake loving like Christ. Where are the relationships and spaces that you need to courageously risk loneliness and season this world with salt, light, and Christ like love? God’s up to something . . . be salt.
