TOPIC: SALT

“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.” Matthew 5:13

MESSAGE

Last night, I telephoned the family farm back in Maryland to see how my sister Jay was doing. She was up to her elbows in pickles! Cucumbers are ripe off the vine from Jay’s garden so she’s spending her evenings boiling and blanching, staining and sealing. I love my sister’s pickles, and I think her secret is… salt. She adds a lot of salt and tells me that it’s the best way to preserve a pickle at its crunchiest, tastiest best.

Those words go well together–salt and preserve. As Christians, we act as a salty preservative in this world, infusing godly values into the life around us. We have the work of restraining evil and advancing good. And just as salt brings out the flavour in food, we can “season to taste” our words when the world asks us for the reason for the hope that is within us.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4:6).

Joni & Friends Devotional | 15 September 2021

Preserving good in the world. Flavouring your words with the Gospel. These are big responsibilities. And remember that God did not say that you should be the salt of the earth, but that you are. So don’t lose your saltiness, whatever you do today.

Lord of the Harvest, you have chosen me for a special task in this world. Thank you for the privilege of being salt in order to make people around me thirsty for you. Show me today how I can preserve all that is good around me and how I can flavor my conversation to make people long for you and look for you.
