How Salty are you? Matthew 5:13"You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his flavor, with which shall it be salted? it is thereafter good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." We are the salt in this world. Salt gives flavor to things that are tasteless. There is a lot of negativity in the world, but we give it flavor when we let the goodness of the Lord show. We season what may be bland and make it taste good when the fruit of the Spirit is manifest. Luke 14:34 "Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?" Mark 9:50"Salt is good; but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another." How can we expect people to get thirsty for the things of the Spirit? Be salty. Salt created thirst. What we say and how we act can make them thirsty. If we don't provide the salt no one else can. Salt is also a preservative. We are preserving this place as long as we are here. We are holding back the worst of the worse. It may look like things as going bad but nothing like when we are gone. So be SALTY!
