Day 26: “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 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. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16 ESV - In chemistry today we delved into the intricacies of spectrophotometry. That’s a big word. It means we learned about light. We talked about the broad, overarching conceptualizations of electron absorption and emission of energy as it correlates to fluctuating ranges of excitation. We talked about the basic light spectrum and corresponding equations from erudite thinkers of the past like Rydberg and Bohr. We laid the framework for novel approaches and innovative thought patterns that enable us to streamline calculations by combining many variables into a single expression. Etcetera etcetera. Chemistry stuff. Then, Dr. Johnson casually mentioned that sodium burns bright yellow. He showed us a tangible, pertinent example of sodium as it caught fire and exuded this radiant yellow light. He was like, “Yeah a lot of lamps have sodium in them and that’s their chemical source of light.” Immediately, that captured my fascination and, enthralled, I couldn’t help but grapple with this idea of salt within light. Now, I have an “enlightened” understanding of why Jesus invited us to sustain our saltiness. As believers, we have to remain well seasoned, losing neither ardent zeal not fervor. We should fulfill the work of the Lord with such alacrity and euphoria that the outside world can’t help but gravitate towards our light. When the Holy Spirit catches fire within our souls we are able to internalize and emanate this bright yellow light. The Christian faith is a beautiful opportunity to draw people into a relationship with God by the sustenance of spiritual zest, salt. So, remain flavorful. Let your light shine.
