Notes from 9/14/14 and today
Salt enhances flavor. I’m learning this more and more as I’ve been cooking a lot of beans lately. Too little does little good. Too much can burn. Applying this to the idea of Christians being salt in this world, it makes a lot of sense. We are not to be over zealous, especially in the way we talk. We are to be gentle and meek.
Do I give flavor or suck the flavor out? The gospel itself is offensive to the lost, but my character should not be offensive. Salt also creates thirst. So, too, should my life cause others to thirst after Christ.
If I am the salt of the earth, then the earth is being seasoned by me – one of His people.
How salty am I? How consistent am I? How intentional am I?
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men” Mathew 5:13
