As Christians we talk about being light in the world. We learned the song as a small child. But when Jesus told us we were the light of the world, He also told us we were the "salt of the earth". I think we forget about that, or else our attitudes would be different. What do I mean by that?
Salt does several things. I want to address only a couple.
It gives flavor to foods. When I made mention to our attitudes, I was referring to the way you act, respond and conduct yourself, and what kind of "taste" does it leave with people. Do you have a bad attitude? A selfish, self-centered attitude? A disagreeable attitude? A mean and hatful attitude? If so, you are leaving a "bad taste" in people's mouths. Not only are you leaving a bad taste about yourself, but you are leaving a bad one about the Jesus you say you love and represent. If that is the case, you have lost your salty flavor.
Salt also makes a person thirsty. Does your life make anyone thirsty for Jesus? Do they see Him in you in such a way where they desire to have Him in their lives also? When a friend tells me about a new recipe they tried and how wonderful it tasted, and on top of that I see a picture of the dish, I can't wait to try it for myself. Our lives should reflect our wonderful Jesus to the point where they see Him in our lives and hear about Him in such a way where they desire Him for themselves. Does your life do that? Or have you lost your salty flavor?
Have a great day. You are the salt of the world. Are you still salty for Jesus?
