Mathew 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men."

I have always been somewhat amazed by the scripture verse in Matthew 5:13. What is so special and great about salt that a whole portion of scripture has been dedicated to describe it? Curiosity compelled me to find out! I did some research among enthusiastic salt consumers and discovered that salt, in all its variations, practically improves the taste of every food dish.

As according to research studies, many of us, without realizing it, are dependant upon salt. Our food is so intermingled with salt and is not able be separated from it, that it seems that many would not be able to live without salt. It was for a good reason that God described us as being the salt of the earth. Like salt, we bring flavour into the world.

Our life brings this special extra zest - this substance which causes a person to become addicted to it, which every hungry soul is longing for. Psalm 34:8...And how will friends, people on the job, college friends or school friends know that God is good? By the good fragrance and flavour of His Spirit in us, through which He is visible in us, everywhere we go. Kmc

Just like the scripture verse says, there is literally no substitute for salt. It makes the difference!
