“You Are the Salt of the Earth”
Salt makes things taste salty; if it doesn’t make things taste salty, it isn’t salt. When you stop and think about it, non-salty tasting salt is useless; in fact, it isn’t what it is.
God, don’t let us be what we aren’t; help us always to be what we are, namely, faithful disciples of Jesus whose motives, words, and actions permeate our homes, our churches, our neighborhoods, our communities, our towns, our cities, our states, our nation, and our world with the grace, love, and peace of our Lord.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot” (Matthew 5:13).
