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.

Today as I thought about why God would choose something so plentiful and easy to get as salt to illustrate our value, steadfastness, and impact, it hit me!   Salt has to be mined.   It isn't easy to get.  It's value was comparative to gold.  

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 

Matthew 5:13-16
