  Dear Young Ones, Calvary greetings to you my dear children in the precious name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This is another year for zealous works and more creative activities for you to grow in faith through the knowledge of God’s love and to become like Jesus in every way.  

TEXT: Matthew 5:13

MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 5:13a “you are the salt of the earth.”

1. Identify salt and what it is used for.
2. State that “I am the salt of the earth”
3. Say that salt is good.

We are the salt of the earth.

Whenever Mummy is cooking in the kitchen, have you ever seen her put some white particles in
the food. It is called salt. Without it, Mummy’s food will not be sweet.

1. Salt is sweet and it is a preservative.
2. The Bible says that we are the salt of the earth. Meaning without the followers of
Jesus, life will not be sweet and it will be easily destroyed because there is no salt
(Preservative) to preserve it.
3. If a seasoning has no flavour, it has no value.
4. If Christians make no effort to affect the world around them, they are of little
value to God.
5. Christians are to salt the earth with the love and message of God, if not we become
useless to God.
6. If you as a Christian are not affecting the world around you then you will lose your savour.
7. You are thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.

When you are salty, you will affect the lives around you, you will also be a seasoning and a
preservative to them. You are to salt the earth with the Love and message of God. You are to
affect others positively, just as seasoning brings out the best flavor in food.

It is only when Jesus is in your life that you can be the salt of the earth. Without Jesus
in your life you cannot impact others positively.

If you are salty, you are just like a shining light that has effect on everything around. You will
affect everything around you and you will also have long life since salt is a preservative.

Have you ever tasted food that has no salt in it? How does it taste? Tasteless! So is your
life if you refuse to be salty. No one will want to relate with you and you will be useless.

Jesus is the one that has the power to make your life salty, why not invite him into your heart
now and see what He will make of your life. (Teacher to lead the children in Salvation prayer).

1. Say the memory verse.
2. What salt used for?
(a) It is used as seasoning to give taste and add flavour to food.
(b) It is also used as a preservative.
(c) It is also a Purifying agent.

NOTE: The teacher is to explain to the children what a preservative is and a purifying agent.
A preservative is something we use to keep food from going bad. A purifying agent is
something used to make something pure by removing dirt or harmful things.
