worth your salt

 

I remember hearing as a child, "worth your weight in salt".   Salt was always something easy to come by for us.  We went to the store to buy many varieties of salt.  Course, pink, kosher, fine grain, you name it we could buy it.

It isn't easy to be salt for this world.  As a matter of fact it is very hard work......but it is needed more now than ever before.

To be salt that has value is to dig into God's word and allow it to change us and make us strong and purified, devoted and a little spicy 😏.

Salt.  

Yeah , Salt
