Ye are the Salt of the Earth…Or, are You "Good for Nothing"?

Print Post

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

~ Matthew 5:13

As Christians, we’re the “salt” of the earth.Ye are the salt of the earth - Matthew 5:13 Salt is essential to our well-being. Without it, we would die. It’s a sustainer of life. It can cleanse… It can preserve… When salt is added to our food during meal preparation, it’s meant to liven the flavor of the food. As Christians, we’re to influence the world. Sadly, it’s often the other way around. We let the world influence us. So, we try to live like the world does instead of “separating” ourselves. When this happens, we lose our saltiness and therefore, we’re “good for nothing(*Matthew 5:13). Think back on Lot — before Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Lot had lost his “saltiness“. His influence there in his surroundings meant nothing.  He lived a worldly life. Even trying to warn his family seemed like mockery to them. So today, I challenge you to be salty in the earth. Live for the Lord Jesus and let your “saltiness” have influence on the world. Remember, you’re the “light of the world” to lead them to the right path… Jesus Christ! ~ Rhonda White Matthew5-13
