Be the Salt of the Earth

34 Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? 35 It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. ~ Luke 14:34-35

Jesus says that we are the salt of the earth. So, if we are to be the salt of the earth, we had better know what that means. Wouldn’t you agree?

Because Jesus goes on to say that if salt loses its taste, and we will come back to that later on in this message, so keep a finger there. But, if salt loses its taste, it’s no longer useful either for the soil, or for the manure pile, or in other words, the dunghill.

Salt is good. Therefore, salt is healthy, fit, useful, and serviceable. That is what Jesus wants us to be: Healthy, fit, useable, and serviceable. There are many reasons, I believe, why Jesus chose this analogy for us to be salt of the earth.

Salt is:

    1. Immutable – unchanging
    2. Salt has a high melting point of 801° C and boils at 1413° C
    3. Has very low freezing point of −1.8°C
    4. Salts are good conductors of electricity

Jesus is saying, you are the salt of the earth, and the salt of the earth is organically healthy and useful, but if it, or more precisely, if you, become a fool, how can you get back your influence? Who, or what can make you influential or wise again? Don’t throw away the salt for the fake table salt of the world.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be the Salt of the Earth.
