Anyone who knows me,knows I love to eat. I, like most Americans love pizza Americans eat the equivalent of 100 acres of pizza per day… That’s a lot of pizza! And each pizza taste different. Dominos or Little Casers, Papa Romano’s or Frozen, they all have a unique taste. So what makes them different? If we think about it, they all have the same ingredients; they all have crust, sauce, cheese and pepperoni (or what ever your favorite is).
So why do some people only eat pizza from one place, and hate pizza for somewhere else? The answer is in the ingredients… It’s what is in side that counts… Hmmm sounds like something my mom would have told me. But it’s true, what spices are in the sauce makes all the difference.
Now if you look at most pizza sauce, they all look the same, you really can’t see that much of a difference, but trust me, there is! One pizza place may use lots of garlic, and very little oregano, and another may use no garlic and lots of basil. So each sauce will taste different.
Jesus calls us to be spice, in-fact He called us SATL… I’m not sure that all of us would consider ourselves salt, but that’s what Jesus called us. What he was saying is that each of us is an ingredient, each of us adds spice to this world, and we all make the sauce a little bit better! We are all challenged to become a spice in our faith, to be a light (Jesus also told us we are the light of the world), a shinning example of our faith. So I now challenge all of you reading this to also become a spice in our faith, and shinning example for all to see.
