You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
Salt does three things:
- Salt preserves--As a Christian I am to maintain and continue to grow in my faith in Christ.
- Salt creates--Through my words and actions, I strive to make people want to know God.
- Salt cleanses--I fail sometimes, and through Jesus Christ, I am purified and refined. I must admit that I am wrong, and seek help. God is always gracious and merciful!
