be salty

this morning i was reading chapter nine of mark. verse fifty really struck me. it says:
"salt is good. but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you make it salt again?
have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another."

in matthew 5:13 we are called to be the salt of the earth. it says that if salt becomes tasteless it cannot be made salty again, therefore no longer being good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled on.

so here are some tidbits about salt:
- salt is tasty, which is why we put it on food for seasoning
- it is important in preserving food
- chloride and sodium ions (major components of salt) are necessary for survival of all living creatures
- salt is involved in regulating water content of the body

so this is what im supposed to do. Jesus wants me to be salty...in other words, i need to be pleasing to others (the tasty part), i need to help preserve others for God, and just be all around nourishing to others, not hindering or bringing them down. this being my prayer, that i can stay close to Jesus and remain salty, helping others see the light of God.
