Use this unit study to help teach children that we should be proud of our Faith and that Jesus calls us the Light of the World. It is based on the Gospel of St. Matthew 5:13-16.
During the Sermon on the Mount, Christ tells the people in the crowd that they are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. He wants them and us to know that we should never hide our light, that is, our love of God and our Christian faith. As Christians, each of us should be a beacon to draw others to the Lord.
