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

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
