Please Pass the Salt!

Lev. 2:13 Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.

“What’s wrong with the way it’s always been done?” asked a volunteer at a new event being tried. My first human response might have been one in defense, but Christ calls us to be salt. So I sprinkle myself, okay…douse myself, with any grain of Christ-likeness I can find in me and try to add the flavor of Christ to my response, so that perhaps the volunteer will get a glimpse of Jesus. I am always happier when I do it God’s way and not my own…why don’t I do it God’s way all the time? I know we are human, but that doesn’t mean we have to give up our pursuit of being like Christ. Whatever God commands, God supplies the tools.

Salt is used for flavoring and preserving foods. My grandmother needed to use unsalted foods for her diet. Have you ever tasted some of the unsalted foods on the market? There is a huge difference in flavor. Thankfully, a saltshaker was nearby when we would share a meal. “Please pass the salt” was a common quote around the table. I was able to enjoy my meal more with the flavoring salt added. I think relationships can be enjoyed more also if we added some salt. When the relationship gets in a tough spot, call out to Jesus, “Please pass the salt!”

Where do we get this salt? In the Old Testament, there was an endless supply of salt for the Israelites in the Dead Sea along with mountains and valleys of salt. We, too, can buy salt at the grocery store at a very low price because of the abundance. Spiritually, we have an abundance of “salt” through the Holy Spirit. If we tap into the source of the salt, we have as much as we need to flavor our offerings, whether they be relational, work related, sacrificial, or spiritual…we can “taste” like Jesus. So please pass the salt, of course, after you have sprinkled some for yourself.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
