Matthew 5:13 – Salt of the earth

Jesus used salt to describe how we are needed to bring balance and hope to an otherwise dark world.

Salt is invaluable to human life, and so as Christians we are to be an extension of Jesus Christ and offer the message of the priceless gift of eternal life through Christ.

In the same way that salt enhances the flavor of food, we as followers of Christ stand out as those who “enhance” the flavor of life in this world.
Christians, living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in obedience to Christ, will inevitably influence the world for good.

I have learned I can’t always control the trials I face but I am the keeper of my “salt.” Will I be bitter or better? Will I be less seasoned or more flavorful? Because in the end, what good am I if I’ve lost my flavoring?
