Taken from The Way of the Master Minute
The Salt of the Earth

Listen

Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”( Matthew 5:13) Salt cleanses; it preserves; it brings out taste. If you want to cleanse a stain from a cup, use salt. If you want to preserve meat from rotting, use salt. If you want to bring out the flavor of food, use salt. It has many properties, but the one common denominator is that it must come into contact with something to do its work. It needs to be scattered out of the saltshaker. If we don’t shake ourselves into reaching the lost, God may shake us. Remember, He allowed Saul of Tarsus to scatter the early Church. We are told that they were “scattered abroad, and went everywhere preaching the word.”(Acts 8:4) There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
