๐ŸŒผ Just like the slab of Salt, formed inside the pit, is BROKEN and then purified to get a more finer quality of salt…., we who are the salt of the earth, will be taken through a process of being broken and then made into a BLESSING for others.

๐ŸŒผ The little boy ๐Ÿ‘ฆ with the five barley loaves and two fishes was so captivated with the words of Jesus, that he forgot to have his meal!! John 6:1-14. However Praise God, HIS LITTLE MEAL TURNED TO BE A BLESSING FOR THE 5000 MEN GATHERED THERE! Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fishes in His hands, gave thanks and the disciples distributed it among the people.

๐ŸŒผ Salt is important because food without salt is rather unpleasant to be eaten! Salt adds taste to the food โ€” Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg? Jobโ€ฌ โ€ญ6:6โ€ฌ. Well, there you go!! White of an egg is full of protein and a strong prayer life is compared with the white of an egg. Yes, praying is a hard exercise, nevertheless only those who know the value of this protein will have it gladly ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐ŸŒผ Jesus compares the Salt of the Earth with the Light of the World. Mathew 5:13,14. He continues saying โ€” Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthewโ€ฌ โ€ญ5:16โ€ฌ. Did you know โ€” Salt water is a good conductor of electricity? Well, Jesus wasnโ€™t wrong when He compared the salt of the earth with the light of the world!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐ŸŒผ Salt is used for marinating meat โ€” done for preservation, increasing its flavour and also keeps it in a good condition. Spiritually, being salted refers to sanctification. Jesus was salted for our sakes and so He says โ€” And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Johnโ€ฌ โ€ญ17:19โ€ฌ. Jesus did no sin, He knew no sin and in Him was no sin; even then, He set an example of sanctifying by perfect obedience and humility. May the Lord help us to be salted so that we in turn can be a blessing for others!!
