the first eight verses of chapter 12. basically, we talked about the beatitudes, and there's enough in there that that was pretty much my plan for the lesson anyway.
when we had about ten minutes left, i jumped ahead a few verses to talk about verse 13, where Jesus talked about being the salt of the earth. and while the manual and some of my own notes had some interesting points about what salt means and represents, i will always think of salt in light of how my brother wrote about it four years ago, in terms of cooking and the gospel.
i read it again this morning and the essay was even better than i remembered it. it's long, but if you have the time, i highly recommend it (again.)
