salt of the earthImage by: phyrephox

Imagine your doctor advises you to avoid Salt. What is the best substitute you can find? (there are sweeteners for sugar and Pepper for chilly) Nothing right? There’s no substitute for Salt.

This is why Jesus said that we are the Salt of the earth. You cannot be replaced. Since the ancient days Salt had three major applications. It was used as a flavor, as a preserver and as a fertilizer as well. In other words to make things better. God have put us on the earth to make it a better place. So today’s study is about being Salt and the light. Let us see.

‘Ye are the Salt of the earth: but if the Salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be Salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men…’ Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV)
