About your being the salt of the earth…
Matthew 5:13"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. (NIV)
In your daily life, the world swirls in the filth of dirty jokes, pornography, corruption, crime, hatred, bigotry, irreverence, and lawlessness. You are in the middle of this darkness, struggling to do the right thing. In the middle of this darkness you are to be a tiny salt crystal, a tiny light to make the world more bearable, more kind, and more survivable. Salt is used both as a seasoning and as a preservative. Your Christian life and witness adds taste in a tasteless world. Your life and witness are the preservative keeping the world from unraveling and falling apart. Be Christ's salt by giving love, giving understanding, and shining the light of His truth into the hearts of all those you know.
