31 Days of Song: “Do Everything”

“You are the salt of the earth” (Matthew 5:13).  Salt was put into foods to help with the flavour and we as Christians, the way we do things, what comes out of our mouths, should have a different flavour to those around us.

I saw a play last night by a Christian theatre company.  It was very cleverly done and had the potential to be really good, but I was disappointed with the swearing in it.  If I read online that a film contains strong language, I choose not to go and see it, no matter how good the storyline or how much I’d like to.  “But now also put these things out of your life: … using evil words when you talk” (Colossians 3:8).  Writing or acting for a Christian theatre company isn’t an excuse to throw off restraint and call it ‘Getting into character’; I think you’ve got a responsibility just like the rest of us – to write your plays, or adapt your parts so you can act them out in a way that honours God.

This song I’ve chosen was going to be in the 31 Days somewhere, and today it seems really appropriate – a reminder, to me and to you, to bring a smile to God’s face with every little thing that we do.  If I had to pick a theme tune for my life, this would be it.

  1. You are perfectly right, we are to be in the world but not part it. Salt in Bible times was used to stop food stuff from going bad,it was a costly commodity. The text reminds us that the Christian man or woman is to be a influence for good in a world which is decaying. If our lives are not making an impact, the saltiness of our lives has lost its goodness.
