More Than Flavor
Long ago, salts were used to preserve
Meats that were served
At a table gathered
With friends and loved ones.
Salts can add flavor to foods that are plain
And-a little is enough and just right
To change a bland meal
Into a feast of delight.
Weary travelers may carry salt
For a different reason- as salt
Is not only used to
Flavor and season
But after walking from place to place
Certain salts added to water can
Bring comfort and healing
To achy feet that are
Red, sore and peeling.
We can swim in a salty sea
Under the gold sun joyfully
Reflecting on the words of Jesus
Where He taught others to become
Fishers of men --wonderful
Scriptural lessons we love to
Hear ...again and again.
Salt is here to stay,
As are the Words of Jesus.
Those who believe
And experienced new birth –
By the eternal goodness
Of God who called us to be
The salt of the earth.
