Salt Is Good

In the Bible, salt is:

1. A reminder of a divine covenant.

Leviticus 2:13And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt; you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you shall offer salt.

2. A tool of marvelous healing and cleansing.

II Kings 2:20-21And he said, “Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. 21 Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the LORD: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’”

3. It creates desire.

Job 6:6Can flavorless food be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

4. It is a preservative.

Luke 14:34-35“Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

5. It is a cause of peace.

Mark 9:50Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.

6. It is a necessary element in our testimony.

Matthew 5:13You 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.

7. An evidence of grace.

Colossians 4:6Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Peace and blessings!

    Amen PT!
    I have to be salty, so that I can preserve God’s Word and season the world with the good news. Help me be the preservative for this dying world.
