Salt makes any insipid dish flavorful. It seasons. It relishes.
As a metaphor used in the Christian life, salt is grace in our journey to make a difference in the world so it will know about Jesus. We should be a flavorful option to an insignificant existence of a friend or stranger by bringing them the hope of a seasoned life in the Lord’s loving embrace.
Blending in is the more convenient way of life; however, we are told to make a difference. Like salt, we are to spice up insignificant lives for the cause of the cross. However, if we fail to be “salty” we lose our chance to help season the world for God.
It says in Matthew 5, verse 13 …
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing anymore, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.”
