Don't Lose Your Saltiness
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. (Matthew 5:13)
Jesus is comparing Christians to salt.
Salt is used for flavoring and preserving food.
When a Christian is following Jesus they will have a positive and preserving influence on those around them.
However, a Christian can lose their saltiness.
They can do this by compromising the commandments of Jesus and following the ways of the world.
Be careful not to lose your saltiness by meditating on, memorizing, studying, and obeying the commandments of Jesus. Ask God to give you the strength to obey what He is asking you to do. ~ Jeff M Newman
