Salt Restricted

We were talking about salt at my daughter’s natural health clinic. Part of the discussion centered around the benefits of sea salt. Another aspect of the discussion was the balance between water and salt.

Our physical bodies require a balance between water and salt. It is not unusual to hear of someone going on a salt-restricted diet. The balance could also be restored by increasing water.

In our spiritual lives, we are to be salt to the world around us. Jesus said, "You are the salt of the earth…” (Matthew 5:13a) Salt both preserves food and brings out the flavor. We are to preserve God’s values and share the freshness of His mercies in our culture.

Are we as Christians on a salt-restricted diet? Are Christian values having less of an impact in our culture?

The key to restoration is to increase water--living water. Jesus said, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." (John 4:10)

How are you teaching your children to be salt?

God bless….
