How can you be the salt of the earth?
Well, what does salt do? It seasons, adds flavor, highlights the essence of the original dish.
So as a Christian, you should…
Season your relationships with love and holiness.
Add the rich flavor of truth to your conversations and interactions.
Highlight the essence of God’s character in your daily life.
If you don’t . . .
If your speech tastes unloving and unholy . . .
If your relationships highlight the world’s discord . . .
If your life is seasoned with selfish desires and lusts . . .
Then are you truly being salt in this world? Or have you lost your flavor?
How do you faithfully remain “the salt of the earth” — living in this world, but remaining unflavored by its sinfulness?
