Salt was a symbol of permanence and loyalty.
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
Salt was used as a preservative. It was an expensive commodity. But if it was no longer good, it was useless and had to be thrown out. People understood the importance of salt and what Jesus was saying when he told the disciples to be salt.
Wherever you are, God has put you there to be salt – to preserve and to make things better. With his words, Jesus elevated his disciples to be salt – to be useful in the world and to make a difference. What are you going to do this week to add flavor and preservation?
