Be Salty

The human body needs salt to regulate the electrolyte balance inside and outside of its cells.

God has rescued us and says we are needed. He needs us to flavor the world with His flavors.

Matthew 5:13 "Let me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage." (The Message)

We shouldn’t blend in. We should be different. There should be more to us than meets the eye.

We should bring change around us.

We must be salt and flavor this world.

Have you ever tasted hot air popped popcorn with no salt. Now I know it is supposed to be good for you, but it is nasty. You know what I mean. There is no purpose to it. When you add salt to it.

The plain popcorn is like the world. It is the same old routine. Same old pursuit. Same thing…get up every morning, work or go to school, come home, watch tv, spend time with family, go to sleep…

But when you add some butter and especially salt to it…it enhances the flavor.

Now when you get up you realize that your life has a purpose…that everywhere you go you bring the God-flavor to your environment.

Your life has a purpose as you realize that every one you come into contact with is someone whom God has drawn across your path.
