You Are Still Salt, Even When You're Surrounded By Pepper & Onions


Is there someone at the job who pushes your buttons and triggers you to lose your saltiness? Is there a situation that is causing you to forfeit your peace rather than preserve and enhance it? You are the Salt of the Earth. And sometimes you've got remind yourself of this simple truth when people test your patience and situations test your resolve.  The Bible uses the analogy of salt in Matthew 5:13 to refer to the role and characteristics that we should try to embody as Believers. Salt had two purposes: to preserve food, especially meat which would quickly spoil pretty quickly since there were no refrigerators in those days and to enhance the flavor of food. In the same way that salt preserves food and enhances the flavor of the food it seasons, we as Believers are expected to do our best to preserve the peace whenever possible and enhance or positively impact the people in our sphere of influence. Where there is discord, we are to be peacemakers; where there is sorrow, we are to be an encouragement to people, and where there is darkness, we are to look for the light.

Today's Bible Verse: "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 underfoot." Matthew 5: 13 (NIV)

Here's A Simple Prayer That You Can Pray Today:
Dear God, Let my speech be gracious and seasoned with salt, so that it may add peace and not strife to the situations that I encounter today. Let my actions be well thought out and seasoned with salt. You have given me wisdom therefore I will choose my words wisely and not be hasty in my responses. I choose to be a preserve peace as far as it depends on me and I choose to be an enhancer to the people in my circle. In Jesus name, Amen.
