Stay salty

Salt is good. It adds flavor to our food and, in some cases, preserves it against spoiling. Salt serves a useful purpose. Jesus called His followers the “salt of the earth” in the Sermon on the Mount. He intended that His followers would make a positive, useful impact on the world. One of the things salt generally does is makes us thirsty. When a believer is “salt,” behaving in a distinctly Christ-like manner, non-believers might watch and thirst for what we have. But if we lose our taste—if we lose our commitment to Him—what example have we set? It’s not easy to be “salt” in a world that doesn’t respect Christianity. But we can hold onto our “taste” by staying in close fellowship with Jesus, by maintaining peace with others as much as we are able, and being in community with other believers who can hold us accountable and also encourage us. It’s wise for each of us to take a look in the mirror from time to time and ask ourselves if our behavior would entice others to seek our Savior. Pray to stay salty!
