Insight: Jesus seems to be saying: "Don't act this way because of who you are, and act this way because of who you are." Question: how does Salt lose it's taste? Question: why would you hide your light if you really can't? Question: How do good works point to our Father in heaven? Remember: always get the broader context of verses to help interpret-->in this case look at Jesus' discussion on persecution.
