This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 5:14 (ESV)
Today I am asking a question: Does your salt still have its flavor?
I’m focusing on the passage from Matthew 5:13 that tells us we are the salt of the earth, but then asks what the purpose of salt is if it has lost its flavor.
In biblical times, salt was used to preserve food, particularly meat, as well as to add flavor to food. As Christians, it is important for our spiritual walk to maintain its flavor by preserving God’s word in our hearts and minds so that it is ultimately reflected in our actions.
This is exactly what Peter did when he encountered a lame man who had been begging outside the temple for the last forty years. Peter did not give him money, but instead he chose to heal him.
As a result of Peter’s actions, not only was the man healed, but many other lives were touched. As thousands of souls turned to God due to the healing of this lame man, Peter acted as the salt of the earth—a salt that had not lost its flavor.
We also know that Peter did not begin his spiritual walk strong and had many struggles along the way. In other words, he had many periods in his life when his salt may have lacked flavor, so to speak. Yet Peter’s story should inspire us, showing that there is always time to turn it around.
Therefore, I ask you, does your salt still have its flavor? Tune into the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel today as I give you a little demonstration on how I add flavor to my mornings. Before you do, remember these words: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 (ESV)
