“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything. except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” Matthew 5:13
Do you flavor your life so other people can see Christ in you? Why do so few people today choose to make a difference? Our lives are bombarded with circumstances and pressing demands on our time and attention. We experience so many diversions. Mix in our over-obligated lives and the demands of raising children and interacting with extended families and it’s easy to hide our salt shakers. It’s easy to tell ourselves, “Someone else can do it.” It’s easy for our salt to lose its flavor.
It’s easy to hide our salt shaker. But God wants us to flavor our lives with meaning and hope so others can see the difference Jesus makes in our lives. And the difference our salt can make in someone else’s life.
