Am I God's Salt

by Naomi Hicks

What place do I fill on the street where I live?

Do my actions each morn rise above

The grind of my dailies-do I want to give,

Does my life show a hint of Your love?

Am I there for the hurting, an ear that will listen,

A refuge and friendly retreat?

Do I flow with an elderly friend's reminiscin',

Encouraging, cheerful, upbeat?

Do I show myself willing to help out my neighbor

No matter how humble the task?

Am I ready to lend, or to spend time in labor

Although he's unwilling to ask?
